Maxi Oyedele scores first senior goal on loan – Man United News And Transfer News


Maxi Oydale scored his first senior goal on Saturday, helping Altrincham to a win over playoff pushers Woking.

Eudel, making his second appearance since being loaned to Greater Manchester side Altrincham, came off the bench in the 57th minute to seal the eventual winner ten minutes later.

The midfielder arrived in the box to celebrate in a manner familiar to United fans, sending in a Regan Linney cross and carrying Marcus Rashford’s now trademark copy of the celebration.

The 18-year-old is part of a trio of United Academy players who are on loan at Altrincham alongside Joe Hugill and Sonny Algeoffrey, but he is the only one not yet in the National League side’s matchday squad. .

After the win, Ortrincham manager Phil Parkinson said, “He had to be really patient and wait for his time. He needs to keep doing that now and maintain his place in the team.”

“For Maxi it’s not a matter of physicality, it’s a matter of his game awareness, his understanding of the game. He showed me that he has it today.”

“We took a little risk in getting him in early in the second half, but we wanted to see if he could deliver on what we talked about and what he’s got. It worked out well.”

“He’s at a great club called United. If he wants to go there, he needs to be a standout player for us and I’m sure he will be.”

Originally from Salford, Eudel has represented Poland at youth level through his mother and has also qualified for Nigeria and England.

Still qualified for u18 football, the all-action midfielder is unusually young to be on loan away from United, but has little playing time left, especially as the packed group of midfielders in United’s u21 set-up spread out. The prospect of senior football was too tempting to turn down because there wasn’t… around it.

Oyedele hopes his impression from the bench will earn him a first start for his loan club, with the next game against Barnett on Tuesday.
