Noam Emeran’s latest left-footed worldie mirrors Amad Diallo’s brilliance

Erik ten Hag is a manager who loves his wingers to cut inside and get plenty of shots away and luckily for Manchester United, they have plenty of youngsters who fit this bill.

One of Ten Hag’s first signings as United boss was Antony. While the Brazilian winger has had mixed fortunes so far, it’s easy to see why United wanted to sign him.

In Ten Hag’s 4-2-3-1 system, the wingers tend to take more shots than any other player on the pitch. It’s no surprise that Marcus Rashford and Antony lead the way for shots per 90 in the United squad.

United splashed out around £80million on Antony, but they are lucky enough to have a few other youngsters gunning for this position. While Amad Diallo has been making waves while out on loan, Noam Emeran has been ripping things up for the Under-21s.

Both players are left-footed, love to run at defenders and have an eye for the spectator. In the case of Emeran, we can’t wait to see what is next in store for the 20-year-old.

Since being snapped up by United in 2019 from Amiens, the French youngster has gone from strength to strength. Across various youth groups, he has scored 12 goals and provided eight assists in 55 appearances.

His latest sprinkling of magic came against Leicester City’s Under-21s in the Premier League 2. Scoring both goals for United in a 2-2 draw, he showcased just what he is all about.

The first goal was textbook for a player like Emeran. Having drifted away from his marker, he is left with an acre of space to execute the finish. Diallo or Antony would’ve been proud of that one.

His second strike of the afternoon is an even sweeter attempt. From David Beckham to Cristiano Ronaldo, United have a star-studded past of free-kick specialists.

Diallo has proven to be somewhat of a master from these sorts of areas while on loan with Sunderland and Emeran also has those tekkers in his locker.

Leicester’s Under-21s had flipped the game around in the second half and led 2-1. Taking matters into his own hands, the French youngster struck a beauty of a free-kick.

His slow stuttering run-up does the trick as the goalkeeper doesn’t want to commit to his dive too early. Then with the perfect blend of finesse and power, he glides the ball over the wall and past the helpless goalkeeper.

Back in February, Emeran was part of a teenage quartet who got the chance to train with the first team. With this being the case, Ten Hag is already well aware of the youngster and what he has to offer.

We have seen how beneficial a loan spell this season has been for Diallo’s development and perhaps that is the next stage for Emeran.

The 20-year-old is capable of playing on either flank and would be an exciting player for any EFL outfit next season. Given his wand of a left foot, you would imagine Ten Hag would prefer him off the right-hand side.

United have plenty of prospects in their academy right now, but Emeran has us all excited. We can’t wait to see what’s next for the French winger.
