Adnan Januzaj says he’s determined to have a successful loan spell with Sunderland, as the Belgian is reunited with manager David Moyes.
Januzaj, 21, made 27 appearances for Manchester United during the 2013/14 season when Moyes was in charge at Old Trafford. After a disappointing loan spell at Borussia Dortmund last season, where he only made 12 appearance in all competitions, Januzaj is out to prove himself at the Stadium of Light this season. He completed his move on Friday, with his debut coming the following day as he came off the bench in the 2-1 loss to Manchester City.
“My job is to score goals and assist goals,” Januzaj told Sunderland’s official website. “The fans come to the stadium to enjoy football and watch players that make things happen, so I want to be one of those players and make them happy.
“David Moyes was key to me coming here and I appreciate the opportunity because I want to show people what I can do.
“Everything was done really quick; I met up with the team yesterday and played in the game today, and it was an unlucky game for us because we played well and worked hard for each other.
“It was a great feeling to play especially against such a big club, and although it was not easy I think we did really well.”
Januzaj was the third Sunderland signing from Manchester United, with Paddy McNair and Donald Love joining on a permanent deal earlier in the week for a £5.5 million transfer fee.
