“Especially supportive” – Dan Gore receiving ‘hands-on’ advice from two Man United stars



| Last Updated:


Dan Gore made his Manchester United debut earlier this season against Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup.

The United academy midfielder appeared as a second-half substitute on his 19th birthday, but the cameo was far from a birthday gift.

Gore had been training ‘every day like his life depends on it’ for over two months with the first team and was rewarded by Erik ten Hag when his team were in a comfortable lead against Roy Hodgson’s side.

“(The) perfect way to spend my birthday,” he said after his debut. “So special to make my competitive debut for this club, a dream come true.”

The teenager has captained the youth sides and won the under-21’s Player of the Year award for the club last term.

After joining the first-team squad on the pre-season tour of America in the summer, Gore impressed in his appearances, particularly against Lyon when his pinpoint cross found Donny van de Beek for the winning goal.

Having been amongst the first-team squad for several months now, the midfielder, who’s been compared to Roy Keane, has been learning from some of the senior players in the side.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Jonny Evans has been especially supportive of the midfielder and offered him plenty of advice since they started training together.

Evans re-joined the club in the summer on a short-term deal and joined the youth side on the pre-season tour. However, the defender ended up signing a one-year contract with the club afterwards.

The aforementioned report added that Bruno Fernandes has been very welcoming of Gore and has taken a hands-on role in supporting his integration into the first team environment.

Gore has appeared in the matchday squad for Ten Hag’s side nine times so far this season and could receive more opportunities as the season progresses.
