Some Man Utd fans think youngster would benefit from loan move after Astana defeat

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United youngsters were defeated 2-1 by FC Astana in Kazakhstan.

The Reds looked comfortable in the first-half and took a 1-0 lead into the break thanks to captain Jesse Lingard’s goal.

But the game turned when Tahith Chong somehow missed an open goal from close range to double United’s lead. Just seconds later, Astana had gone up the other end and equalised, completely shifting the momentum towards the hosts.

Chong failed to impress United fans this evening and some think he could benefit from a loan spell elsewhere.

At just 19-years-old, Chong is still very young and has plenty of time to develop. But he has struggled for game time under Solskjaer this season and it will be difficult for him to find a way into the team on a regular basis.

The Dutchman hasn’t shone yet in the first-team for United, but has been very impressive for the u23’s.

Perhaps a loan spell with guaranteed first-team football will allow Chong to grow his game maximise his potential.
