Adnan Januzaj gets mixed reviews after full Sunderland debut

by Tanveer Arayan

Adnan Januzaj had a mixed performance on his full debut for Sunderland in their 2-1 loss to Middlesbrough.

There were some real quality moments from the Belgian where he danced past Middlesbrough’s defence but unfortunately for him his final delivery wasn’t up to scratch and nor was his finishing.

It was good to see him running at defenders with confidence but he’ll need to improve on his final product to keep a spot in David Moyes’ starting teams.

I’ve got really high hopes for Januzaj this season under Moyes. He might not have been the right manager for United but after playing under managers who didn’t trust him, Moyes is perfect for Januzaj and he’s in an excellent situation having had a troublesome couple of seasons.

Januzaj is one hell of a player but we’re yet to see him build on that breakthrough season under Moyes. Hopefully that changes this year and Januzaj finds his best form again because he’s one of my favourite academy graduates in recent years.
