Speaking to BT Sport about his goal, Anthony Elanga said: “I think that was my first touch as well! I’ve dreamt of moments like this.
“Whenever I get a chance for the club I want to repay the manager. I want to be the best player I can be on the pitch. I appreciate the boss.
“I just want to be on the pitch, to lead like I’m the best player on the pitch. Make the defender scared and run in behind.”
Elanga came off the bench against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday to score and rescue a 1–1 draw for Manchester United.
The Round of 16 second-leg clash will be played at Old Trafford next month and Rangnick simply must start the young forward against the La Liga side.
