Jamie Redknapp heaps praise over Adnan Januzaj

The former Liverpool star believes that the Belgium international is a more talented player than summer signing Memphis Depay

According to Jamie Redknapp, Adnan Januzaj is a far more talented than the Manchester United signing who was brought to the club for 31 million pounds this summer.

The youngster scored the decisive goal for the Red Devils on Friday in the 1-0 win over Aston Villa and Redknapp feels that the Belgian attacker offers his team more than Memphis Depay does.

“The good news for Manchester United now is that Januzaj has come back into the equation,” he said onSky Sports. “He looked like a young man that could go out on loan, with talk of Sunderland maybe taking him.

“I think they have signed Memphis Depay for £31 million but they already had somebody in their ranks that is more talented. [Januzaj] is a special player.

“I remember the first time I watched him for United and I think about the goal he scored against Sunderland – he can do special things with a football.

“He wasn’t magnificent [against Villa] by any stretch of the imagination but the arrogance he can afford to play with will come with confidence.

“He drifts past people and has a unique talent like that. He’s the special player in this team, I think. He can turn people inside out.”
