The young Albanian talent of the 'Red Devils' scored twice as a starter in the Premier League and unleashed a real auction between nations. Albania (the favorite), Belgium and England want to ensure its performance. Being born in Belgium to Albanian parents, Januzaj has a double passport: Albanian and Belgian, and is the most courted eighteen year old. He decided to hold his future in abeyance, avoiding answering Belgium's Under 19 call-up, and is attracted by the idea of playing (we hope) in Gianni De Biasi's Albania.
Who is Adnan Januzaj?
The son of Albanian migrants, he was born in Brussels, already predestined because his birth date, the 5 February 1995, is the same as for players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Tevez and Neymar. He took his first steps in the Anderlecht youth sector. In 2010, at the age of 15 years he is noticed by Manchester United observers, and the English team buys him for 300.000 pounds. The debut in an official race comes in the August of 2013, when 'Wembley' wins the Community Shield (English Super Cup) in the match against Wigan. And last Sunday, Moyes even fielded him on the occasion of the challenge against Sunderland. Seventy-seven minutes on the pitch and an amazing one-two for him, who gave Manchester the three points.
Januzaj is about 1 meter tall and 80, technical, fast and plays mainly as an outer wing. There are those who consider him the heir of Giggs, due to his technical characteristics. He always said he wanted to play with Albania to honor his origins. A bit like his idol, Ryan Giggs, who chose Wales by refusing the courtship of England.
