'What a f***ing player' - rival Premier League player couldn't help but declare his love for Kobbie Mainoo after his winner for Man Utd

Kobbie Mainoo starred as Manchester United sealed a dramatic victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Manchester United’s Kobbie Mainoo received praise from a rival Premier League player after his late winner against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

On Thursday night, the Red Devils arrived at the Molineux Stadium looking to extend their three-match unbeaten run.

Erik ten Hag’s men got off to a brilliant start as Marcus Rashford netted inside five minutes and Rasmus Hojlund made it 2-0 with 22 minutes on the clock. Wolves managed to pull one back before Scott McTominay made it 3-1 in the 75th minute.

Max Kilman and Pedro Neto then scored to make it 3-3 but Mainoo netted deep into stoppage time to seal a dramatic 4-3 victory for United.

After the match, Tottenham Hotspur defender Sergio Reguillon, who spent the first half of the season on loan at United, showed his love for Mainoo.

The Spanish full-back wrote on the 18-year-old’s Instagram post: “What a f***ing player.”

After his loan spell with United was cut short in January, Reguillon went on to join Brentford for the rest of the 23/24 campaign.

Speaking after winning the match for his team, Mainoo said: “It is a dream come true. It is a tough place to come. We had to get the win. I have still not come down from it. I still feel like I am dreaming, to be honest.

“To start playing in the Premier League for my boyhood club has been amazing. Now it’s about trying to win more games.”


Ten Hag added: “I think last autumn I saw him for the first time and at that moment I thought he was playing a little bit too comfortable in the Under-21s, he should be much more dominant.

“We pushed him a lot by that side, by pushing him in training and you see he makes such good progress and he is almost progressing from game to game. And of course, it’s wonderful to see and I hope he stays calm like he is, as he did with his goal as well.”

United will be back in Premier League action this weekend when they take on West Ham United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
