Enrique Facussé is unlikely to be a name you’ve heard of, not unless you’re a fan of the Honduras U23 side or the University of Kentucky.
The 20-year-old currently competes for the University alongside his business administration degree and recently earned himself a call up to the Honduras U23 side.
That saw him interviewed by La Prensa, who sat down to talk to him about his career so far, his idols and plans for the future among other things.
And it seems Manchester United are a firm favourite of his, as he not only revealed his admiration for David de Gea but his desire to end up at Old Trafford in the next three years.
“I have always been a fan of De Gea, although he had a bad season,” he said.
“Because of his height I admire him and I look like him, we play similar, we are tall and I like his way of playing, he is a crack.”
Asked which team he sees himself at in three years, the footballer said: “My dream is to play in Europe, specifically Italy. It would be a pleasure to play for Milan or Manchester United, it would be incredible.”
Whether Facussé gets that opportunity in future remains to be seen. Given he’s currently out in America at university, it’s unlikely he’s on United’s radar or likely to be in the near future.
With a call up to the Honduran U23s already under his belt, though, the 20-year-old is well on his way to making the step up.
And there’s nothing wrong with ambition.
