Troy Deeney Praises The Mentality of Manchester United Academy Products


Troy Deeney praised the mentality of Manchester United’s academic products compared to other major clubs.

The 34-year-old is currently playing in the Championship with a club from his hometown of Birmingham City.

It is there that the striker is a teammate with United loanee Hannibal Maybri and former United Academy graduate Tait Chong.

During a conversation with The Times , Dini said: “I always find that those from United have the right attitude, I do not know if this is due to what [Sir Alex Ferguson] invested there a few decades ago, but those that come from Manchester United. always respectful, there is a desire to be better.”

Deeney also compared United graduates to graduates of other major clubs, saying that “money is never solved for them. I’ve had people from Chelsea and other clubs, and it’s primarily motivated by money, whereas at Manchester United it’s “I want to be the best of the best.” Even if they don’t keep doing it, there’s always that drive.”

Danny Drinkwater, who has played with many graduates of the United academy throughout his career, was the one he pointed out, saying: “The earliest one I had was when Danny Drinkwater came to Watford from Manchester United. to get better and then continue the career he has made.”

Drinkwater never achieved a breakthrough at United, but still reached the highest echelons of the game when he lifted the Premier League trophy with Leicester in 2016 and received a call-up to the England national team.

In the twilight of his career, Deeney now considers it his duty to help young players, noting: “My job now is to shape them and help guide them on and off the field.”

With his checkered past and short temper early in his career, Dini’s past could have been a lesson for the often short-tempered Maybri.

Fortunately, Mabry did not see the reds more than once, but often walked a tightrope during the lease, receiving eight yellow cards.

Despite the fact that the Tunisian has shown excessive enthusiasm at times, he impresses the Midlands club and has made three assists in 23 matches.

The most recent fight was in Saturday’s 1-2 rental at Preston North End, where Mabry played 62 minutes.

BirminghamLive rated his performance as “6.5 — his first 45 was a period to forget about, as he failed to impose himself on the game and received another warning that could have been avoided. His persistence in the second half was different from his teammates, and it was somewhat unexpected to see him replaced after an hour.”
