Watford scholar Ogo Obi helped Manchester United Under-17s retain the Milk Cup Premier title after a 1-0 victory over French team Vendee.

The young striker, who has been given permission by the Hornets to train with the Red Devils this summer, started the contest.

In the opening period, Obi went down in the area under a challenge and thought he should have been awarded a penalty before having a shot saved by Vendee goalkeeper Maxime Telliet.

The contest was settled in the second period as Cameron Borthwick-Jackson headed home for United.

Obi netted three goals in four matches for United during their Milk Cup campaign.

Think the boy is jumping the gun, at his age it must be flattering to be at united but will he ever make an impact into the senior squad there...I think he would be better off with us so we could develop him as we did with Ashley Young...there not many clubs better to start your career than at Watford.

I'm not sure that Scholes and Giggs et al would agree with you.

He is a good player but I would be more upset if Ronny Rosenthal's son gets poached, he is going to be a very very good player.

If he decides to join Man Utd. I hope he enjoys playing in tournaments such as the Milk Cup as that is as about as good as it will get for sometime. If he stays at Watford his development will be a lot quicker and with likely exposure to the first team.
