David Moyes revealed that Adnan Januzaj feels confident playing in any position after the Belgian inspired Manchester United to a 2-0 victory over Swansea City on Saturday.

After a tight first half which was delicately poised at 0-0, the United manager switched Januzaj to the left wing and the tactical change paid dividend as the forward had a decisive impact.

He tells me he can play anywhere

The 18-year-old proved a menace on the left wing, whislt Antonio Valencia and Danny Welbeck scored the goals which secured a massive three points for the defending champions at Old Trafford.

“Adnan has been like that since day one. He’s not a nervous boy. He tells me he can play anywhere,” Moyes said.

“He needs teaching and he needs more understanding because he is still learning the game. There are a lot of things he is already doing and, in terms of natural talent, he is up there with the best. I think in time he will prove to be that.”

Moyes added: “I moved Adnan there against Sunderland in midweek and he played very well. He can play in all the positions around the front and I wanted to see if he could give us more creativity, more chances.”

Moyes also reserved special praise for Japan international Shinji Kagawa after the midfielder flourished in the second half in the number 10 role behind Welbeck.

“Shinji played well in the second half and should have scored. He plays off the left for
Japan and has played for us on the left but, if you look at the quality of players we have, there is a lot of competition there.”
