Man Utd midfielder Iqbal admits looking up to Gomes


Manchester United midfielder Zidane Iqbal admits he looks up to Angel Gomes.

Like Iqbal, Gomes came through the United system before leaving for Lille.

Iqbal told the club website: "The coaches mentioned Angel Gomes to me. Look at him now, playing for Lille in the Champions League.

"They mentioned Paul Scholes but they're obviously the players who played down and have gone on to do well.

"Obviously, other players have played down and their careers have not gone as successfully as they wanted it to.

"But I knew I could make the situation really good by looking up to players like Scholes and Angel, if they played down.

"I look at it as a positive, they're doing it to better you, so that's what I did and it helped me a lot."
