Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe put on a splendid display against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last night and the club’s manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems pretty impressed with the young defender’s display.
The Red Devils ended up winning 2-1 away from home thanks to goals from Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford.
The Manchester United manager said: “Axel did fantastic, he’s been out for 10 months so to put in a performance like this against Neymar and Mbappe almost surprised us as well. We know he’s a good player, but to do it on a night like this is fantastic.
The defender had not played for 10 months but he came in and put on an assured display against the French champions.
The Red Devils managed to keep the likes of Neymar and Mbappe quiet for the 90 minutes and Tuanzebe was crucial to their defensive organization.
It will be interesting to see if the centre back can establish himself as a regular starter from now.
The defender will be looking to build on this performance and force his way into Manchester United starting lineup in the coming weeks.
The player has been on loan at clubs like Aston Villa and it seems that those spells have helped him improve and develop as a defender.
He will be hoping to make it at a club like Manchester United now and last night he showed that he has the potential to play at the highest level.
