Louis van Gaal has tipped Northern Ireland defender Paddy McNair to have a bright future at Old Trafford.
Van Gaal believes the Ballyclare youngster could become a permanent fixture in the Manchester United backline for the next decade.
The United boss told MUTV that McNair is one of many youngsters with a bright future ahead.
“It is not only Paddy McNair who has impressed with his development, as I have given a lot of chances to younger players,” Van Gaal said.
“But Paddy McNair has developed himself very well, not only as a central defender but now we are giving him the chance to develop as a full-back and he did it very well.
“He has done it already in the second team [Under-21s] and has done it now at a higher level in the first-team.
“Maybe he shall be the right full-back of Manchester United for the next 10 years, you never know.
“He has the chance.”
