Nicky Butt urges patience from fans over "exciting" Manchester United youngsters

Manchester United's development chief Nicky Butt has urged fans to remain patient with the club's young talent as the likes of "unbelievable" Mason Greenwood attempt to make headway during a transitional period for the Red Devils.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have endured a tough start to the 2019-20 season, although Sunday's 1-1 draw against Champions League holders Liverpool showed light at the end of the tunnel.

Among the handful of positives in the opening months have been the opportunities afforded to academy graduates. Brandon Williams recently made his debut and James Garner has been around the squad, while fellow teenagers Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes and Greenwood have played multiple times.

"A big thing about that is the connection between the staff. In fairness to all the managers we've had over the years, they've always helped the academy.

"Some obviously are easier to approach than others because of personal connections and we're fortunate at the minute that Ole is in the hotseat.

"He's coached in the academy, he did his coaching badges with academy players, with academy coaches, so he knows pretty much everybody right down to the Under-12s in the club.

"And that can only be beneficial. We're very, very lucky to have someone like Ole in charge. It makes our job certainly a lot easier."
