Axel Tuanzebe hints at close return to first-team action

Manchester United star Axel Tuanzebe has potentially gotten fans excited by seemingly hinting at a return to action.

With Victor Lindelof in poor form this season, some supporters have called for the young Englishman to be called up to the starting XI.

Tuanzebe enjoyed a successful season on loan with Aston Villa last year and that experience has allowed him to step up under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s leadership.

Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo have been used as back-ups to Lindelof and Harry Maguire but in truth it should’ve been minutes handed to the academy product in order for him to develop further.

Unfortunately Tuanzebe suffered from a knock and so the hope is he can get over his injury quickly so his potential doesn’t stall.

Manchester United are definitely a more solid team this season than last season but there have been individual defensive errors that have plagued the team.

Tuanzebe hasn’t shown to be a clumsy defender in the past so the hope is he can help cut out the silly mistakes by leading by example.

United’s main woes this campaign however has actually been their inability to attack effectively and dangerously, particularly when playing against weaker opposition.
