Chong passed Kelle Roos, the Dutch keeper of Derby County, in the eighteenth minute. At first he tried that with a marker, but Roos saved that attempt. In the rebound, Chong then hit hard. Uruguayan talent Facundo Pellestri made the 0-2 on behalf of United after an hour. Ten minutes later Colin Kazim-Richards (ex-Feyenoord) took care of the 1-2 on behalf of Derby County, the team of Wayne Rooney.
With Juan Mata, Mason Greenwood, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Nemanja Matic and Jesse Lingard as the only really famous names, Manchester United have started preparing for the new season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has four weeks until the start of the Premier League to see many young players in action, but also wants to keep Tahith Chong in the group for a while to have enough players at his disposal.
Chong was born in Curaçao, but moved to Rotterdam when he was ten and played in the youth academy of Feyenoord from 2009 to 2016. The 21-year-old left leg was already rented out to Werder Bremen and Club Brugge last season. At Werder (which was relegated after his departure in January), he scored a goal and two assists in fifteen matches, at Club Brugge (with which he became champion) he was good for a goal and five assists in thirteen matches.
