Watch: Anthony Elanga scores stunning volley in Man Utd friendly
Anthony Elanga maintained his excellent form with another goal during Manchester United‘s pre-season friendly against Brentford.
After impressing for United’s Under-23s, Elanga broke into the first team and scored against Wolves on the final day of the 2020-21 Premier League season.
He seems to have picked up where he left off last season, coming off the bench to score a brilliant goal in their recent 4-2 defeat to QPR.
“It would be easy to say the boy should go on loan but he’s doing so well,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said after the game at QPR. “He’s electric, his pace, his skill, he’s not afraid of anything, he’s got the courage and bravery of a Man United player.
“Today he created chances for others and for himself, he scored a goal with his most difficult opportunity, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s going to be staying here.
“It depends, of course, we know it’s important for him to develop and get game-time but he’s one of them we’ve not really decided. Because if he keeps on like he is I might want to keep him.”
The winger made another great impression during the game against Brentford, opening the scoring with a fine volley after Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s cross.
