Junior coach says Regan Poole can make it at Manchester United

Regan Poole’s former junior coach says he can make it at Manchester United.

According to Poole’s old Cardiff and Vale County Schoolboys coach, Matty Davies, the Welshman is capable of becoming a big hit at Old Trafford.

“He is a smashing young man. He is as technically able as Rio Ferdinand,” Davies told Manchester Evening News.

“He has an eye for defence-splitting passes and is very comfortable on the ball, he has a little bit of everything. He can do a number of roles and he has got the hunger and desire to be better.

“He started out in centre midfield and worked his way back. He can play in a number of positions.

“In terms of where he will end up, I haven’t got a crystal ball but he played at right-back for us as well.

“We used Gareth Bale as an example because he played a lot at left-back. Regan’s attitude is a bit similar to Ben Davies, who’s now at Tottenham.

“His attitude is spot on. He was the first in to training and the last to leave. He was like a sponge, always wanting to learn.”
