Birmingham City manager Lee Bowyer has hailed Tahith Chong as a credit to Manchester United.
The Manchester United youngster is on loan at Birmingham City and continued his fine start to life in the Midlands on Friday evening, helping the Blues beat Wayne Rooney’s Derby County 2-0 to secure their first home victory of the season.
Bowyer told Birmingham Live via TribalFootball: “Everyone will talk about him in possession and the way he glides past people is beautiful to watch.
“But I look at the other side and he works so hard for the team. To come from Manchester United and to have the attitude he has, and work the way he works, he is a credit to their football club.
“I have told them that already, to produce someone with that talent who works that hard for the team.
“There are other players that have talent, but they are luxury players. He ran 60 yards, sprinted past someone to catch up – I like that more. If you have that talent and still do that, you have every chance of making it at the top.”
