Manchester United has completed the signing of the former City defender from the class-of-92 owned Salford City, Sadiq E Fitouri. Atleast for now the defender is signed for the Under-21 squad.


Sadiq El Fitouri only made his debut for the Northern Premier League club earlier this month but impressed in a behind-closed-doors match at United’s Carrington training complex.


That prompted the Reds to sign the defender on an 18-month contract. The Libya-born defender will link up with Warren Joyce’s Under-21 squad and could face Fulham on Monday.


The youngster was clearly over the moon after the deal was finalized, he said: “This is honestly a dream come true for me and I have to thank Salford City for the chance, as well as the faith they have shown in me.”


“I am really looking forward to what happens next and to be given the opportunity to do so at Manchester United is unbelievable” Fitouri said.


Gary Neville, one of Salford’s co-owners along with brother Phil, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs, said: “Incredible story on Salford City on Sadiq El Fitouri. Well done to Phil and Scholesy for showing belief in a lad who was out of the game.”


“Phil and Scholesy gave him his Salford City debut just three weeks ago and the boy has signed for United” he said.



Phil Neville said: “We are immensely proud that our club has been able to give an opportunity to a boy who had the determination and passion to play without necessarily having the chances.


“What we are trying to do at Salford is to develop our own talent, nurture players and keep them at the club, however we also recognise that we cannot stand in the way of talented players playing at the highest level and that can only be a credit to how SCFC is progressing.”


The other member of Class-of-92, Paul Scholes added: “Our firm belief is that we want to make a difference and whilst we are only 6 months in we have established already, in this one moment that we are able to help promote and project young people and give them a chance. A chance that we were given ourselves.”


Sadiq Fitouri was released by Manchester City and was out of the game as recently as last month before Salford signed him. No doubt the involvement of Class-of-92 members played a huge role in making this deal possible for the young full-back.
