Angelo Henriquez: I want to stay at Dinamo Zagreb

by Ben Topliss

Angelo Henriquez has revealed he does not want to go back to Manchester United when his loan deal with Dinamo Zagreb ends in the summer.

The Chilean joined Man United in the summer of 2012 but he has never made a senior appearance for the club.

Instead, he spent the last two seasons on loan at Wigan Athletic and Real Zaragoza respectively.

Since moving to Dinamo, Henriquez has scored 11 goals in 17 appearances and he admitted he is settled in the Croatian capital.

Speaking about his future, the 20-year-old said: ”Dinamo is making an effort to buy my contract from Manchester United, which means they are satisfied with me.

“I feel great at Dinamo and in Zagreb, I feel great on and off the pitch and that is why I want to stay here. People here accepted me, I’ve gained many friends, Zagreb is beautiful city and the fans love me too.

“We are on the way to win the double and to compete in Champions League qualification and I am looking forward to being a part of that.”

If Henriquez was to leave United he would join a long list of youngsters who never quite made it at Old Trafford.

Players such as Frazier Campbell, Mame Biram Diouf and Chris Eagles showed promise early on in their careers at United but eventually moved on to pastures new. However, the likes of Paul Pogba and Gerard Pique have flourished since leaving and have gone on to become some of the world’s best players.
