Gary Neville makes Axel Tuanzebe and Harry Maguire claim for Manchester United
The 21-year-old was selected in the starting line-up for United in their trip to face Newcastle at St. James’ Park, partnering summer signing Harry Maguire at the back.
While Tuanzebe is still relatively inexperienced, Neville is optimistic from what he has seen from the young defender so far and believes he could be the answer to United’s problems.
“I am enthused by Tuanzebe playing centre-back. Maybe, he could be the ideal partner. He needs some experience, he needs a bank of games under his belt, but I think he has the potential to be a good partner for Maguire,” he told Sky Sports.
He also came on as a late substitute during the 1-0 victory over Leicester City, as well as featuring in the Europa League win against Astana and the Carabao Cup clash with Rochdale.
