Anthony Elanga knows what it is like to compete in the FA Youth Cup for Manchester United.
The young Swede, now established in the first team, reached the semi-finals of the competition in 2020.
Elanga will be shouting for Travis Binnion’s side tonight when they take on Nottingham Forest at Old Trafford in the eagerly awaited final.
It promises to be a special occasion with a sell-out crowd expected at Old Trafford.
“Hopefully they can bring the trophy back to Old Trafford, back where it belongs,” Elanga said, in a short clip shared by United’s official Twitter account.
Showing support to our #MUAcademy U18s! 👏

Elanga has quickly become a player for these kids to look up to as a senior professional. He may have only just turned 20, but these boys will be striving to follow in his footsteps.
We will have lots of coverage from the game tonight so stay tuned.
