Stunning Compilation Of Axel Tuanzebe's Performance For Man Utd Vs PSG After 10 Months Out

A compilation of Axel Tuanzebe's stunning performance vs Paris Saint-Germain proves he is the central defender that Manchester United need right now.


United ran out 2-1 winners at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday night and a shock inclusion in the side was Tuanzebe.

The 22-year-old had been sidelined since December with a number of injuries and was drafted in after Harry Maguire and Eric Bailly were ruled out.

But Tuanzebe didn't look out of sorts and dominated Kylian Mbappe as United secured a historic away win.

While he managed to put in a fine defensive display, Tuanzebe proved he could contribute going forward with a wide array of passes in his locker.

Pace is something United's backline has lacked for a number of years and the England youth international had it to burn.

Fans have reacted to his performance and they think he must start against Chelsea on Saturday.

Former Red Devils star Rio Ferdinand was on punditry duty for the game and he raved about Tuanzebe's performance.

He told BT Sport: "This is where Man United have struggled in the last six to 12 months, in them areas, chasing players down the channels, they can't stay with them and then that opens up the back four or back three.

"But he was smelling danger. Ole just said he faced two of the best strikers in the world, he snuffed out danger many a time today, you have to reward performances like that.

"He has had a hard time with injury, but again first game in 10 months, to come in and play like that out of the cold, you deserve to be rewarded but Ole is the man to make that decision."

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer added the performance after such a long injury layoff was impressive.

'We know Axel's qualities, he is a top defender. That was his first game in 10 months, so that performance is testament to the quality he has."
