There was a star man, on the left hand side; he played for Man United, and his name was Januzaj. Good evening everyone and welcome to the game that everyone seems to be calling the Adnan Januzaj derby, fifty percent of which is based on the fleeting promise he showed for United in the immediate Wilderness Years after Ferguson’s departure. The remaining half is courtesy of Januzaj now doing his bit in the Basque Country, where Sociedad currently sit fifth in La Liga after a heady period prior to Christmas where they topped the table. With United currently second in the Premier League, this makes for the tastiest square go in the Europa League round of 32. We’re relocated to Turin for this evening’s fun and games, and we’ll be away at five to six.
