Former Crewe Alexandra starlet Nick Powell was shocked to learn that Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson views him as the possible midfield successor to club legend Paul Scholes.

"What he has achieved in his career is more than most people can dream of" - Nick Powell
The England Under-19 international scored on his recent United debut - a comprehensive 4-0 Premier League victory over Wigan Athletic. He could now be in contention to face Newcastle United in the Capital One Cup this evening.

"What he has achieved in his career is more than most people can dream of - to achieve even half of what he has would be brilliant," Powell commented on comparisons to Scholes in the latest United Review, reports United's official website. "Hopefully I'm on the right path."

Powell netted sixteen goals in 45 appearances for the Alex last season, including a scintillating opener in their memorable Wembley play-off final victory against Cheltenham Town in May, until a 6m move took him to Old Trafford.
