Carrick: Januzaj will keep his feet on the ground

Michael Carrick is wary of there being too much pressure put on his fellow Manchester United midfielder Adnan Januzaj, but is backing the teenager to handle being in the spotlight.

It is a lot for a young lad to take to come in like that. The attention he is going to get now will be a lot.

He is young, he is going to learn along the way and learn fast. I am sure he will be fine.

Young lads can come in and change. Their life can change overnight and the expectations and pressures change. There are more responsibilities.

But he is at the right place and he has a good attitude. He is going to stay on the right lines.

I and the other experienced players are there to set an example and do the right things.
