Axel Tuanzebe ready to challenge for first-team spot once more

Axel Tuanzebe ready to challenge for first-team spot once more

Manchester United fans may finally get what they’ve wished for all along with Axel Tuanzebe reportedly being fit once more.

The young defender suffered from injuries all throughout the last season and was the main reason he failed to establish himself in the starting XI.

Tuanzebe has all the attributes needed to be a modern defender- he’s fast, strong and can play with the ball at his feet.

The academy graduate has high expectations on his shoulders but so far he’s failed to fulfil his potential.

The hope is that Tuanzebe doesn’t suffer from the same fate others did before him and can shrug off his injury problems to become a first-team star.

The international break has come at the perfect time for Tuanzebe in a sense as he can use it to train well and get his fitness back up.

With there being no pressure from domestic matches, he can hopefully avoid injuries in training and ensure he’s fully available for first-team action.

After the horrific 6-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur, it’s pretty easy to argue the whole defence needs a shake-up.

Tuanzebe might need some time to be fully match-fit but it’d be good for everyone if he can start to challenge for a spot once more.

Although the majority of fans wanted to see a new centre-back at the club, the English centre-back has everything needed to fill that hole if he can realise his potential.

This summer’s transfer window has been one of the strangest in living memory. So cast your mind back to less stressful days and test your knowledge of past United arrivals and departures in our quiz below.
