Zoran Tosic scored an assured brace for Cologne at the weekend to remind Manchester United fans why he was earmarked as a long-term replacement for Ryan Giggs at Old Trafford.

The 22-year-old arrived to high acclaim 15 months ago in what was supposed to be a £17million double deal with his then Partizan Belgrade team-mate Adem Ljajic.

However, Ljajic never made the switch permanent and is now withFiorentina, while Tosic was shipped out on loan after a handful offairly ordinary performances for the United first-team.

A January move to Cologne for the rest of the season, however, has given him left winger Tosic a chance to flourish and push his claim for a place in Serbia's World Cup side.

His first Bundesliga goals came in a 4-1 win at Hannover and will both have impressed Sir Alex Ferguson.

Tosicopened the scoring by cutting in from the right, taking on twoopponents and firing beyond the keeper from outside the box. For hissecond, he stayed calm under pressure and beat the keeper from closerange after playing a one-two with a team-mate.
