Will Keane’s technical ability praised by Sheffield Wednesday boss

by Richard Laverty

Manchester United striker Will Keane has been heavily praised by Sheffield Wednesday boss Stuart Gray after joining the Championship side last week.

Keane has struggled to progress his Old Trafford since a serious knee injury kept him out for a year but a loan spell now comes at a good time after a return to form with Warren Joyce’s U21s side.

Keane’s first chance to make his first appearance for his new club comes tonight in the Championship against Birmingham City and he’ll be hoping this loan goes better than his previous spells.

The 22-year-old failed to score at either Queens Park Rangers or Wigan Athletic but supporters who have watched him for the United U21s side will see how talented he is as a striker.

 

Gray seems to already have cottoned on to the fact Keane is a talent and will hope he can start firing the Owls up the league table.

Keane was part of the successful Youth Cup side of 2011 alongside Paul Pogba and Ravel Morrison but the injury curtailed his progress and allowed 19-year-old James Wilson to overtake Keane in the pecking order under both David Moyes and Louis van Gaal.
