Adnan Januzaj backed to shine

Phil Jones believes Adnan Januzaj will become a star for Manchester United and is expecting “great things” from the teenager.

Januzaj, 18, signed a five-year contract at Old Trafford on Saturday morning before playing in the 1-1 draw with Southampton, where he helped create Robin van Persie’s opening goal.

The Belgium-born midfielder made his debut for United in August’s Community Shield win and his first start came just earlier this month, when he scored twice to clinch a 2-1 victory over Sunderland.

Yet defender Jones has already seen enough of his teammate’s ability and attitude to be convinced that he has a bright future ahead of him.

"He’s a terrific talent and it’s an old cliche but as long as he keeps his head down, he can do great things for the club,” Jones told United’s official website. "There’s massive pressure on him and he’s only a young kid but it’s testament to him that he’s come in and done a great job.

"He threaded a brilliant ball for our goal [against Southampton]. He was sharp, he has nimble feet and he’ll do great things for this club if he keeps working hard. He goes about his business quietly and if he keeps producing performances like that, he’ll be a real star."
