‘He’s earned that, he’s been training with us for two, three, four weeks now, you can just see him growing and improving every day.

‘I said to him after the game ‘You’ve done really well, you’re a 16-year-old lad that dominated the ball, didn’t really give it away, tried to do the right things and when you did give it away you ran back, defended in your own box.

‘He did a lot of good things and I said ‘I only gave you that opportunity because you’ve earned it.  

‘When he first came to us training with the first-team group he took too many touches and was getting caught in possession, but now that’s not happening as much and you’ve seen that there.

‘He played with a confidence and that’s because he’s improving every day and I thought it was the right time and I’d like to think that I was right.’
