Ryan Giggs has been full of praise for Manchester United youngster Dylan Levitt.
The 19-year-old has impressed for the club’s U23s this season, scoring three and assisting four from the middle of the park, in just twelve league games. Such form saw the teenager be granted a start for the senior side away to Astana back in November, a fixture where he showcased his ability to perform on the main stage.
Over the course of the ninety-minutes, Levitt maintained a pass success rate of 96.2%, completing two long balls and a ‘key’ pass too. It was a cameo that confirmed the standpoint that the player was ready for first-team football, with the youngster now looking poised to leave the Red Devils on loan next season.
His rise through the ranks has been picked up by those involved at the club, with Giggs being at the forefront of such. The Wales manager even called the teenager up to his national squad back in May 2019. Although he wasn’t granted his debut, it was an indication that Levitt was being regarded as a future first-team member.
Speaking on the midfielder, Giggs told United’s official site:
“When Dylan was in the squad, we had must-win games so I couldn’t really throw him in and put him in that pressure cooker. But, in training, he’s one of the best. He’s my kind of player – a good character, quiet but tough, and he’s one that I’ll be taking a big look at over the next year or so.“
This reference to integrating Levitt into the first-team over the next year is certainly encouraging news, and one the player will be keen to capitalise on. A loan move looks to be the most realistic avenue in securing these minutes, with Giggs continuing to say:
“I want him to develop and if he does and, if he plays more games, then he’ll definitely be in the reckoning. He’s a really intelligent player with a good range of passing and he stands out in training in every session.”
The teenager is currently on the path to stardom, and should he continue working to impress and improve, he will become a key member for both his national side and the Red Devils.
