(Video) Manchester United loanee scores thunderbolt against Motherwell

It’s good to see young Dylan Levitt enjoying his football in Scotland.

The 21-year-old academy star opened the scoring in sensational fashion as Dundee United took fourth spot in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday night, with a 2-0 win over Motherwell.

Levitt’s first senior league goal, as seen below, was an absolute beauty.

The Terriers attacked down the right flank, but the cross was defended… just about… before Levitt took it on the volley, hitting the ball into the far corner of the net.

With James Garner receiving plenty of plaudits for his performances on loan at Nottingham Forest, Levitt knows he faces competition for game time when he returns to United, but at least he is making a name for himself in Scotland.

Dundee United manager Tam Courts is happy with the United loanee, saying (via Manchester Evening News): “Dylan’s goal was again a real moment of magic. As soon as the ball fell, you couldn’t have better hand-picked someone for it to fall to.

“He caught it so sweet and it was another big moment in front of the fans.”

Levitt, himself, was also asked about the goal. He said at full-time: “I thought I did well, I think it’s a good performance to bounce back from Saturday especially.

“I think I needed that, to get the goal as well. It’s always good to be on the scoresheet, especially wearing that jersey as well.

“But it’s not just about my goal, it’s about everyone, especially with the three points as well.

“It’s the perfect night I think, we could have had more goals if we took our chances and gone at the heart of them in the second half especially, but it’s a perfect night.”
