Darren Fletcher's Son Practices With Senior Team In Manchester United

Manchester United, known as the Red Devils, confront the formidable Turkish team in Istanbul in a bid to salvage their European campaign.

Currently placed at the bottom of Group A, United have suffered defeat in three out of their four matches.

However, their prospects for advancing to the next round remain alive, with just one point separating them from the second-placed Copenhagen.

Erik ten Hag, the Dutch manager, has been meticulously observing his squad during training sessions preceding the pivotal match.

A new addition to the training setup has been Jack Fletcher, who has earned a call-up to the first team.

This 16-year-old prodigy joined United earlier this year after moving from cross-city rivals Manchester City.

During training, Jack worked alongside his twin brother Tyler, both sons of the club legend and current assistant coach, Darren Fletcher.

Although Jack isn’t slated to travel to Istanbul for the Galatasaray match, the training experience will undoubtedly be valuable for his development.

Both twins hold eligibility to represent either Scotland or England in international competitions.

Tyler already showcased his talent by playing for Scotland in the U17 Euro 2024 qualifiers against Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Turkey.

On the other hand, Jack has more recently featured in England’s youth squads, although there have been murmurs about the possibility of him switching to represent Scotland.

In a previous U16 UEFA development match, the twins competed against each other, with Jack’s team, England, emerging victorious with a 3-0 win, granting him the bragging rights back in Manchester.
