Ashley Young has taken to social media to wish Adnan Januzaj a happy birthday after the Manchester United midfielder turned 21 on Friday.

Januzaj, who recently returned to Old Trafford after ending his loan spell at Borussia Dortmund early, shares the same birthday as Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Young posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Friday afternoon and wrote: “Happy birthday bro.”

The Belgium international made his first appearance of the season for United when he came on as a late substitute during the 1-0 loss to Southampton at Old Trafford last month.

Januzaj will be hoping to feature when United return to Premier League action for their crunch clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.
