“It will be interesting with Wazza being with Derby,” Cole told us. “It’s a good one for Wayne, a pre-season friendly against Manchester United and, no doubt, it will be a busy afternoon.
“I’m looking forward to seeing a majority of the youngsters. I’ve not seen too much of them of late, down to the pandemic, and normally I’d catch up with them on MUTV. I’ve not always had the chance to do that so I’m keen to look at everybody in pre-season.
“Of course, Anthony Elanga is one for the future. It will be interesting to see what Ole does with the young players. Whether he keeps them with the first team or sends them out on loan. It’s going to be very, very interesting.”
