Well, it seems like the future is bright for the United star!

"I would [build the team around him], absolutely no doubt," he said.

"I had him with David [Gray] and Etzaz [Hussain] who is playing for me tomorrow.

"That just shows how far the kid has come. Paul is a fantastic kid so hopefully we can build the team around him and keep him."
