WATCH: This Young United Player From Salford Took The Piss Out Of The Barcelona Defence

Remind you of anyone?


Take a bow, Callum Gribbin.

The 17-year-old Salford boy took part in the Otten Cup in Eindhoven at the weekend and the Barcelona defenders are unlikely to forget him in a hurry. 

Playing for United's under-19 side, Gribbin received the ball just outside the box before weaving himself between four defenders and casually slotting the ball past the goalkeeper. 

Check it out below:

What a talent. Big things are expected of Gribbin. We hope José has been watching him as he reminds us of a certain other lad who grew up in Salford...
