You’d be forgiven for thinking that the headline referred to Elliot Omozusi. But while Junior was hardly pulling up any trees in a loan spell with struggling Norwich, young Keanu Marsh Brown has enjoyed a good run in the reserve team. According to those who watch the young team sides and the reserves on a regular basis, Marsh Brown is progressing nicely and has the potential to be an even better player than Omozusi.
It was quite a coup when Fulham tempted Keanu away from Arsenal, where he started his career. Some Arsenal fans are very disappointed indeed. Marsh-Brown, who has also done well on the right side of midfield too, has beena regular in the England youth international squads and appears to have a very bright future ahead of him indeed. Here’s a story from last October where Keanu talks about his England experiences.
Recongition of Marsh Brown’s talent came when he was included in a list 20 promising English youngsters to cheer up Fabio Capello at the start of the season. If all goes well, there’s no reason why Keanu can’t realise his goal of becoming a regular in the Fulham first team.
