“The whole WORLD will hear his name. Just like Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo. He is my a top young star and he will be able to replace Luke Shaw for a long time”- Erik ten Hag makes strong Harry Amass statement after he was included into Manchester United squad against Liverpool.

Erik ten Hag has named 17-year-old left-back Harry Amass in his Manchester United squad ahead of their clash against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.


United is gearing up to face Liverpool at Old Trafford for the second time in three weeks, aiming to replicate their dramatic victory in the FA Cup quarter-final. In that memorable encounter, Ten Hag’s side emerged victorious with a 4-3 win in extra time, with Amad Diallo scoring the decisive goal.


However, recent setbacks, including dropped points against Brentford and Chelsea, have dimmed the team’s hopes of Champions League qualification. Furthermore, injuries to key defensive players have depleted the squad, leaving Harry Maguire and Willy Kambwala as the only fit central defenders for the upcoming Liverpool clash.


Despite the challenges, this presents an exciting opportunity for Harry Amass, who has earned his first call-up to Ten Hag’s senior squad. Amass, who joined United from Watford last summer, has impressed with his performances for the Under-18s and has recently showcased his talent with the U21s. His dedication and progress were further highlighted when he signed his first professional contract with the club.


Ten Hag emphasized that Amass’s inclusion in the squad is not merely symbolic but reflects the youngster’s readiness to contribute if called upon. He also highlighted the importance of nurturing young talents like Amass and Habeeb Ogunneye, suggesting they could play a significant role in shaping the club’s future.


Amass has enjoyed a productive season, featuring in 19 games across various competitions and contributing with one goal and three assists. While this marks his first inclusion in a first-team squad for United, he previously experienced being on the bench for Watford’s third-round tie against Reading in January last year, demonstrating his early promise and potential.
