Man United defender says they want to emulate the famous class of '92

Manchester United youngster Axel Tuenzebe believes the current crop of players can achieve what the famous class of 92' managed. 

The 22-year-old wants the youngsters at the club to be the foundation future success is built on just like the '92 lot that brought the club immense success. 

“It's just like the Class of 92, that’s something we've been wanting to replicate,” Axel said as quoted by the club's official website.

“This group of lads now that we have come through, the oldest being Andreas [Pereira] and Scott [McTominay], the youngest being Angel [Gomes], Jimmy [James Garner], Brandon and Mase [Mason Greenwood], that bunch there can build the new foundation for the club.

“We have the club's identity installed in us. We help portray that identity to foreign players and help teach them the way of our club and to become better people, better players.

“It's something that's been the club's identity for many, many years and I'm sure there'll be more players to come through.”

United's famous class of '92 produced six of the best youngsters to ever emerge from the academy, who went on to achieve greatness at the club.

They included David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, and Paul Scholes.

The club seems to be heading in a similar direction, with a host of youngsters impressively stepping up this season, with the likes of Greenwood, Williams, McTominay and Chong all getting matches in various competitions.
