The 29-year-old forward quickly made an impact, setting up goals for Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera as the Red Devils comfortably defeated the League Two side.

Speaking with MUTV, Carrick said:

“He is not bad, is he? Not bad for a little man”

“He is going to be a terrific player. He is a proper Manchester United player and it’s great to have him here. He is so exciting and so dynamic.

“He’s always looking to create opportunities, to play forward, and the fans are going to enjoy watching him. Hopefully, we will enjoy playing with him.”
