“I have told myself: ‘This could be the only chance I get in the first team’,” explained Zidane Iqbal in a moving interview with The Guardian.
“It has been part of my game since I was young, always wanting the ball. I just do what I do and whatever is meant to be will be.
“I will have no regrets. I will just try to do my best on the pitch and leave it up to God really.
“I would like to thank the fans for showing me all the love and support recently. It is an amazing feeling. Thank you.”
The Manchester United teenager, 19, continued: “I have grown up loving this club. I have played here since I was eight or nine.
“To play in front of 90,000 people [in Bangkok]. It is something I dreamed of. To play against Victory and against Liverpool, even in the Champions League [against Young Boys]. It is hard to describe.
“[But] if an opportunity came up to go out on loan, I would weigh up the pros and cons. Right now it is too early to say. See what the future holds.”
Iqbal, along with Charlie Savage, are two youngsters who have impressed Erik ten Hag as well as fans in pre-season.
It remains to be seen if he is part of Ten Hag’s plans next season but we hope he is not sent on loan.
