Adnan Januzaj is on his way to Greece today with Borussia Dortmund for their Europa League clash against PAOK on Thursday.
Sat alongside him on the plane was Marco Reus and their friendship this season is going to be an interesting dynamic.
At the weekend, Reus was replaced by Januzaj in the second half and the young Belgian midfielder went on to get an assist with a pass to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Overall, he had a great impact and showed Dortmund boss Tuchel that he does have the qualities needed to change games.
Previously, there would be tongue-in-cheek shouts of “Agent Adnan” after seeing him in a picture alongside Reus but that’s the last thing Januzaj would want, given that he’d be another roadblock in front of him and his United career.
So far, Januzaj has had a very good loan spell at Dortmund as he’s been getting game time and putting in strong performances. We were sceptical about whether he’d get any minutes but so long as he is, then we’re all for his loan move and hope it continues in that fashion.
