Iqbal told the British newspaper “The Guardian”: “I have loved football since I was young, and I grew up with Manchester United, I will just try to do my best on the pitch and leave it to God.”

He added: “Playing in front of 90,000 spectators in Bangkok was one of my dreams, beating Liverpool and participating in the Champions League, it’s hard to put into words.”

He continued: “I’m just trying to complete my journey, and whatever the end is, I’ll do everything I can in training and competition, and if I get the chance to be loaned out, I’ll evaluate the pros and cons , but now it’s premature and we don’t know what the future holds.”

He continued: “I want to thank the fans for the love, it’s a great feeling, it’s great to inspire people on the right path.”

Iqbal took the last two friendlies against Liverpool and Millport City with Manchester United in preparation for the new season.

Zidane, 19, played his first first team match in December 2021, against the Swiss Young Boys, in the Champions League group stage matches.

Iqbal participates in the youth team of Manchester United, but is also called up for the first team if necessary.

Iqbal also played two caps with the Iraqi national team, against Iran and Lebanon, in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
