Januzaj Feeling Pressure Of Giggs’ Comparisons

Manchester United starlet, Adnan Januzaj, has admitted he is feeling the pressure after taking over the No.11 shirt of Ryan Giggs.

The 19-year-old revealed it is a huge honor for him to wear the shirt number which the United legend has worn for 24 years.

"It's a big honour for me and my family and I was very happy to have it given to me,” he said as quoted by ESPN.

"Of course you feel pressure because he was a legend in front of me. He had it for more than 20 years so I'm really happy."

Januzaj also confirmed that there is an improved mood at Old Trafford since Louis van Gaal's arrival despite the opening day defeat against Swansea.

"A lot of things have changed," he added.

"He is a top, top manager we respect him a lot, we are working hard for him, the team and everyone at the club.

"Afterwards, he was honest, but it's only the first game. We know we need to start winning some games. It was a very disappointing game, we did create some chances but we didn't score.

"It's only the first game of the season so it's nothing. We move on to the next one now."

Januzaj replaced Jesse Lingard midway through the first half against Swansea and was United’s best player in the dismal defeat. Overall, the Belgian has 28 Premier League appearances, scoring four goals.
