MANCHESTER UNITED starlet Anthony Elanga is thrilled to see fans singing his name as his red-hot form continues.

The teenager has enjoyed a brilliant breakthrough season, earning the trust of boss Ralf Rangnick.

Having scored against Leeds last week, Elanga was brought on for Marcus Rashford with his side trailing 1-0 at Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

And within five minutes of his introduction the Swede made an instant impact, converting past Jan Oblak to clinch a useful 1-1 draw to take back to Manchester.

Red Devils fans have taken an instant shine to their new wonderkid – coming up with a brilliant chant to the tune of Rhythm is a Dancer.

It goes: “Rhythm is a dancer, Anthony Elanga, you won’t stop him if you dare.

“Came from Scandinavia, he’s United’s saviour, scoring goals from everywhere.

“Woahhh, it’s Elanga, woahhh you can feel it in the air. Woahhh it’s Elanga, woah oh oh oh.”


Man United posted a video of fans chanting the catchy song on their official Twitter account.

And Elanga loved it, quoting the tweet and writing: “Such a blessing 🙏🏾”

The winger made his initial first-team breakthrough under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – starting two of United’s final four Prem games last season and scoring against Wolves.

He was limited to just 17 minutes of action in the League Cup this term under the Norwegian, however, prior to Rangnick’s arrival.

Elanga has now featured in United’s last ten consecutive PL matches – scoring against Brentford and Leeds, as well as Atletico.

He has played for Sweden, the country of his birth, at youth level – but England boss Gareth Southgate is monitoring his situation – with Elanga eligible to play for the Three Lions.
