Focus on... Vermijl

MUTV's regular feature puts United's younger players under the spotlight...

First team played for?
Peer. It's my home town, just a little one.

First competitive game?
I was four years old for my first competitive game. It was in my home town for a little club. Normally, I wasn't supposed to play until five because of regulations but they said: 'Yeah, go on and just do it'.

Signed for United...
I was playing for two years at Standard Liege and then Warren Joyce and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came to watch me at a tournament in Holland. From there, I needed to coem here and do some tests and I was alright.

First player you idolised...
It's always been Paul Scholes, to be fair. Scholes and Ryan Giggs, when I was young.

What are your strengths?
My pace going forward. I just enjoy myself when I can go forward.

Biggest achievement...
It's a difficult question. Just like it was a dream for me as a young kid to play for great club and now I have achieved it at Manchester United.
