First steps: Ethan Galbraith during his United debut against Astana in the Europa League last November

Northern Ireland teenager Ethan Galbraith has revealed how training alongside fellow midfielders Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes has improved his game on and off the pitch at Manchester United.

In a wide-ranging interview with the Belfast Telegraph, the 19-year-old has also spoken about the boost in confidence he received from Old Trafford manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, why national team skipper Steven Davis is an inspiration for him and the family support and sacrifices that have helped him to this point.

Belfast boy Galbraith is one of Northern Ireland's brightest young prospects. Already he has won a senior international cap, with many more to come, and earlier this month shone for the Under-21 side in their Euro qualifiers against Malta and Denmark.
