Adnan Januzaj insists he is focused on performing on the pitch in hopes of saving his career at Manchester United.
He was told he would not be a part of Jose Mourinho‘s plans this season at Old Trafford and was sent on a season-long loan to Sunderland.
The Belgian failed to impress during pre-season but is hoping to fight his way back into the first-team once he returns to Man United.
Speaking about his situation, Januzaj respects Mourinho’s decision to send him out on loan.
“I understand that I was no priority for Mourinho,” he said.
“I don’t have to talk, I have to perform.”
Hopes were once Januzaj was reunited with David Moyes, the man who gave him his Man United debut during the 2013/14 season, he would start performing, but injuries have seen him fall further down the pecking order.
His career has stagnated due to a loss of form since the arrival of Louis van Gaal and he’ll be hoping to reinvigorate his career.
After his failed loan spell at Borussia Dortmund in 2015, there were big questions around Januzaj and they still remain as he hasn’t been able to perform at the highest level under Moyes at the Stadium of Light.
