Lots of stats are thrown around in football, but this one means a lot. United has taken over Athletic Bilbao for the highest percent of homegrown players in Europe’s top leagues.
It is an amazing feeling to have players that are “one of our own” on the pitch for United week-in and week-out. In an era where some clubs have only found success through buying it in the transfer market, United are still intent on doing things the right way.
All supporters should take pride in this accomplishment. This commitment to morals can be seen on and off the pitch. Marcus Rashford in particular exemplifies what it means to be United. The academy continues to prove that United is much bigger than just football.
