Tuanzebe kept Mbappe and Neymar quiet in his first game in 10 months as Utd overcame PSG 2-1 in the UCL
Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe can enjoy a long career at the Premier League club and needs to improve his consistency to realize his full potential, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Friday.
Tuanzebe, who has suffered a number of injuries, kept Kylian Mbappe and Neymar quiet in his first game in 10 months as United overcame Paris Saint Germain 2-1 in the Champions League Tuesday and Solskjaer was full of praise for the 22-year old center back.
Solskjaer brushed off media reports that the club had warned young forward Mason Greenwood about his discipline, saying the 19-year old was a target because of his early success and transgressions on international duty.
Greenwood and Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden were sent home from England duty last month after breaching Covid-19 protocols in Iceland.
British media reports said United had reminded Greenwood of his responsibilities following his problems, which also included poor timekeeping.
