Manchester United name 14 teenagers in squad traveling to Astana

Manchester United has named fourteen teenagers in their squad that is set to travel to Kazakhstan ahead of their Europa League clash against Astana.

The inexperienced group of players for the match includes ten players potentially in line to make their first-team debut.

Dylan Levitt, Largie Ramazani and Ethan Laird are among those called up to the squad for the match, with Teden Mengi and DiShon Bernard also named.

Taylor in Squad

Max Taylor has been included in the first-team squad just over 12 months after starting chemotherapy treatment for cancer, while Ethan Galbraith, Arnau Puigmal, Matej Kovar and D'Mani Bughail-Mellor have also traveled.

Senior United players Luke Shaw and Axel Tuanzebe who are returning from injuries are both in the squad as they continue their rehabilitation.

As expected Nicky Butt has traveled with the first-team for the match, while Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna have stayed behind in Manchester to prepare senior squad members for the weekend Premier League match against Aston Villa.
