Robin van Persie says Man Utd starlet Adnan Januzaj can be world class

Robin van Persie believes Manchester United team-mate Adnan Januzaj can become a world-class player.

The 18-year-old has made the headlines in recent weeks after impressing in David Moyes' side and recently committed his future to the Red Devils by signing a new five-year contract.

Januzaj earlier this month inspired United's win at Sunderland in the Premier League, and last weekend came off the bench to help Moyes' men beat Stoke 3-2, and Van Persie believes the teenager has all the attributes to be a "special" player.

"He's a great player and I'm a great fan of his," the Netherlands international told reporters.

"I thought earlier in pre-season that he has something special.

"Over the years I've seen so many young players and I can honestly say that of all the young players I've seen he is right up there in the top one or two.

"He's a special player. He will give Manchester United a great bunch of goals and great games."

Januzaj has already been compared with Van Persie, but the Dutch forward added: "He’s confident in a good way. He’s not too bothered with the whole occasion or the pressure of the games.

"When I go back 10 years when I was quite young I see similar attributes.

"I was very confident as well and I see some stuff in him and the choices he makes that I made when I was younger as well.

"He's a very big talent and he will be looked after by the staff and players here."
