Tahith Chong, a Dutch professional football player, is presently a left winger for Manchester United in the English Premier League. He is well-known for his ability to score goals outside of the penalty area, but he prefers to play on the left flank since it allows him to display his lightning speed. He can play in midfield and as a striker, yet he can also cover. In July 2016, he transferred from Manchester United to the Dutch professional football team Feyenoord Rotterdam. Despite having a long-term injury, his performance for Kieran McKenna’s Under-18 team caught the attention of coaches and fans, earning him a spot in the Ricky Sbragia-led Manchester United under-23 team. He has made two appearances for the team so far, and in the video game “FIFA 18” from EA Sports, he was selected for Manchester United’s first-team squad due to his outstanding play. Despite the fact that José Mourinho, the head coach of Manchester United’s senior team, never actually benched him or his teammate Angel Gomes for Manchester United’s FA Cup away game against Huddersfield, news outlets recently speculated that he was about to make his first-team debut. At the under-15, under-16, under-17, and under-19 levels, he has played for The Netherlands’ national team.

Become a Star

Tahith Chong started playing football with Feyenoord Rotterdam in 2009 when he was 10 years old. At the beginning of 2016, teams like Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal were interested in signing him because he was considered one of the nation’s top prospects. After it was revealed that Manchester United was almost certain to clinch a contract with the Dutch kid, beating rivals Chelsea to it, he received substantial international media coverage. According to reports, Giovanni van Bronckhorst, the manager of Feyenoord, was desperate to keep him on the squad. The originally enthusiastic Chong later admitted that although he “would have liked to stay longer at Feyenoord because it’s my club,” the discussions of a new deal with the club “were quite hazy.” He continued to discuss relocating to Manchester for that reason.

On July 27, 2016, Manchester United formally acquired his services. While it was a great setup for the youth squad, he managed to stand out with a number of goal assists and a few goals of his own. He joined the team alongside DJ Buffonge and Angel Gomes. Despite a catastrophic knee injury that kept him off the field for 10 months, he managed to join the club’s Under-23 team and is continually supported by supporters in their quest to make the first team.

Career of Tahith Chong

Tahith Chong quickly established his value by taking home the prize for the best-attacking player at the Otten Cup preseason competition. Although he assisted in getting the squad there, Manchester United was defeated by Anderlecht on penalties. On December 12, 2016, he scored the sole goal for Manchester Youth, who lost to Southampton at Old Trafford in their 2016–17 FA Youth Cup game. He suffered a long-term ACL injury on January 21, 2017, while playing for the Academy against Everton, ending his debut season early and keeping him out until November. He was unable to take part in the play-off for the UEFA Youth League. Four goals were scored in 15 appearances, 13 of which were as a starter, during his first season.

On November 18, 2017, he rejoined the team and played a total of 70 minutes as a substitute in the game against Blackburn Rovers. He has scored four goals in five games since his return, earning a spot on the club’s under-23 squad. On January 29, 2018, he made his team debut in a game against Tottenham Hotspur. He made headlines despite the defeat by scoring the game’s lone goal against Spurs at Old Trafford when José Mourinho was also present. His subsequent game for the U-23 team against Derby County on February 4, 2018, finished in a tie. His most recent performance, on February 10, 2018, against Newcastle’s under-18 team, was impressive.
