Adnan Januzaj, despite not getting much game-time with the main team, has reassured his future with Manchester United.

The Belgian youngster came into spotlight after some impressive displays last season under the management of ex-United manager David Moyes. He was probably the only positive to take from Moyes’s disastrous short regime at Old Trafford.

But under the new manager Louis van Gaal, Januzaj is struggling to break through into the starting lineup. He was even forced to play with reserve team where he scored a brilliant hat-trick against Sunderland Under-21 this week.

Former Manchester United youngster Keith Gillespie hinted that Januzaj may leave the Red Devils in search for more first team action.

Gillespie said,

“Unfortunately, with the embarrassment of riches Manchester United have at the moment, he’s not first choice.

“He’s still young though and is learning the game. He needs games to bring out his potential.

“Last season was very poor for United, but he was probably the one shining light in a team which didn’t perform.

“Just look at the players in the team now, the likes of Angel Di Maria, Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao.

“He’s a winger and I’m not sure he can adapt and play as a wing back. He needs to play further forward. It’s very difficult to fit him in to the system.”

Now, the player himself came out and revealed that he is ready to fight for his place at Manchester United and rubbished all the exit rumors.

Januzaj said in his latest interview,

“Of course, I played a lot of games last season and I’m trying to impress the manager once again and get games again this year as well. I tried to do my best. Obviously, even if it’s reserves level, I always have to show myself and improve.

I got a hat-trick but I think I worked hard defensively as well and these are the kind of things I have to do now and at first-team level. I don’t do it for any other people but for myself. I look after my [performance]. Even if I have to play Under-18s, I have to do it and try to improve every time I play.”
