Januzaj: I am happy at Manchester United and committed to giving the club everything

Adnan Januzaj has told Kosovo’s KTV he is happy as a Manchester United player and is fully committed to giving everything to the club in his first television interview.

The 18-year-old has not spoke about his United future since his full debut threw him into the limelight and he has since been linked with most of Europe’s top clubs.

His contract expires in the summer so there are fears that he could leave Old Trafford but speaking to KTV, Januzaj said he was very happy in Manchester and was committed to giving 100% to United.

“I am happy at Manchester United and I want to commit myself 100% in every game to do my best,” he said.

“I want to help Manchester United win the Premier League and become the best player in the world.”

Januzaj spoke with a smile on his face and was very calm when asked about his future in his first televised interview and it sounds like he is ready to commit his future to United. He didn’t pledge his future to the club but that is not something for him to announce on national television, that will be arranged between himself and the club.

And when questioned about his international future, Januzaj admitted that the decision will be down to his father whom he trusts to make the right call.

“It is my dad who decides which national team I will play for so I will listen to him,” he said.

That isn’t good news for Belgium because his father wants him to play for Albania due to their family connections. It would mean that he wouldn’t play in the World Cup but if it means he is completely happy, it would be his best move.

His father is also very insistent that the prerogative for Januzaj is to gain regular first team football and David Moyes showed him that he will get that at United when he started him against Sunderland.

News about Januzaj’s contract will come out as soon as it as happened and United will be keen to try and sort out a new deal as soon as possible.
