Manchester United youngster Tahith Chong has insisted he is focusing on the present and developing at Werder Bremen.

Chong joined the Bundesliga side on a season-long loan deal in the summer having struggled to break-through under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.

The Dutchman is one of the more highly rated youngsters at Manchester United, with the hope that he can develop with regular playing time in Germany.

That is yet to really happen, with injuries and an enforced Coronavirus isolation limiting him to seven appearances and just 206 minutes of action so far.

And it is because of that he is refusing to look too far ahead of himself at this moment in time.

“I am very much in the here and now, and avoid looking too much into the future,” he told BILD.

“I can say that I feel very comfortable here.

“Everyone is very accommodating to me, and I have made friends here. I can’t judge what people expect.

“I’ve been here two and a half months now; I have to learn a new language and get used to the game.”

Chong initially broke onto the scene at Manchester United under Jose Mourinho, but it is Solskjaer who really given him his chance to shine.

The Norwegian boss has shown great faith in Chong, handing him debuts in the Premier League, Champions League and Europa League as well as the FA Cup and EFL Cup in the last year.

That shows the faith in him at the club, but the youngster says there is one United player in particular who has helped him.

“Juan Mata was amazing on and off the pitch,” he added.

“I can highlight many positively. Everyone helped me a lot. I am still in contact with them, and they often ask me how I am. “

“(I respond that) everything is fine for me and that I want to develop myself further in Bremen.”
