James Wilson details qualities he’d take from Manchester United teammates

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United striker James Wilson has revealed what qualities he would take from teammates Radamel Falcao, Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie.

Wilson, who has scored four goals in 17 first-team appearances for Man United, has often spoken of how privileged he is to play alongside the trio.

Injury issues have curtailed the 19-year-old’s progress somewhat but he played alongside van Persie for the U21s against Leicester City on Monday night.

Wilson has been impressed with all three of United’s strikers and detailed exactly what strengths he would take away from each.

Speaking about the trio, Wilson said: ”I would take Wayne’s free-kicks because he practices them every day and more often than not they go on target at least, if not in the top corner.

“I would take Robin’s movement because he has done it for many years now, using opposite movements to get on the ball.

“I would have to take Radamel’s instincts because anything in the box drops to him – he is always in the right place!”

The hope for United fans is that the team can wrap up Champions League qualification with a few games to spare so Wilson can have an opportunity in the final few games of the campaign.

Wilson has had a first-class attitude since making the step up to the first-team and will be looking to push on next season. With van Persie and Falcao seemingly on their way out of the club, he may get a chance sooner than he expected.
