Man Utd Double winner Parker: Elanga like a young Giggs
Manchester United Double winner Paul Parker admits he's a fan of Anthony Elanga.
Elanga, 19, has impressed since being brought into the first-team fold by Ralf Rangnick in recent matches.
"Forget about his age, he wants to go past people. Elanga, for me, has been a revelation on that left side," the 57-year-old told MyBettingSites.co.uk.
"He reminds me of a young Ryan Giggs, the way he drives forward. He wants to beat people and he's tracking back to go and get the ball. It's just application – he wants to win the ball back – he's everything the fans want to see.
"He's doing so well and that's why he 'has' to be starting games."
Parker then continued: "Elanga wants to get to the byline and deliver crosses. He'll run past people without the ball.
"He's unselfish when he runs because he's willing to run and even when he doesn't get the ball, he's not throwing his arms up in the air and cussing people.
"When he makes one run and doesn't get the ball, he makes another run. That's what United fans want to see."
