Manchester United reserves coach Warren Joyce has received praise. The 51-year-old earned high-praise for his excellent footballing education. It was former Manchester United defender John O’Shea who complimented the reserves coach.

The Irishman likely complimented him due to the fact that Joyce brought up two of Sunderland’s new signings this season. Both Adnan Januzaj and Donald Love made a move to the North with the Belgian’s move only being a season-long loan while Love made a permanent move to the Black Cats. Paddy McNair, another Manchester United defender who was coached by Joyce, and Love were both sold to the club for a combined £5.5million.

The former scholar has high praise

O’Shea, who was a former scholar of Joyce’s himself, paid tribute to the Englishman for helping kickstart the careers of many young players and that the young players who are now his teammates, Love, Januzaj, and McNair, will help Sunderland because of the coaching they received.

The former United defender believes the coaching of Joyce is excellent and looked at other teams to show how good the 51-year-old is. O’Shea brought up Leicester City’s Danny Simpson, Danny Drinkwater, and Matty James and also brought up Aston Villa’s James Chester, saying that all of them have gone on to do great things at their club or even the international level.

He said that Joyce breeds a strong work ethic into them and that when they transition from U21s to the senior team, he makes it clear that they have a shot at both the first-team or somewhere else where they could go on to have a great career. He finishes by saying that players have been able to come in and get settled right away and that was because of the development process at the club.
