19-Year-Old Max Taylor Just Received His First Man United Call-Up After Overcoming Cancer

An incredible story 👏

November 26th 2019

19-year-old baller Max Taylor has earned his first call up to Manchester United’s senior squad – just two months after returning to training after successful treatment for testicular cancer.

The defender has been named in the club’s squad for the Europa League fixture against Astana on Thursday night and could make his first team debut for the club, completing a remarkable comeback story since he was diagnosed with cancer one year ago.

Taylor underwent a successful course of chemotherapy in 2019 and only returned to training in September. The promising central defender returned to the pitch for Man United’s U23 team in October and has already impressed coaches at Old Trafford with his ability since making his inspirational comeback.

Taylor joins fellow teen stars Mason Greenwood, James Garner and Dylan Levitt in United’s squad for this week’s European game.
