What Kobbie Mainoo did after Man Utd training on Monday proves he's a class act

Manchester United teenager Kobbie Mainoo has demonstrated his amazing character after what he did following training on Monday.

Kobbie Mainoo has reaffirmed himself as one of the most likable players in the Premier League with an incredibly classy gesture after Manchester United's win against Luton Town.

The 18-year-old midfielder featured from the start and was by far United's most composed player throughout their 2-1 win at the weekend.

The only real negative from Mainoo's performance is a yellow card which takes him just two more away from a suspension, however, it was universally agreed on commentary that the youngster's challenge should not have even been awarded as a foul.

Since making his first start at Goodison Park in November, Mainoo has emerged as a consistent presence under Erik ten Hag, featuring in 15 matches and starting 13 of them.

The 18-year-old's impressive performances have sparked speculation of a potential call-up to the England national team, with Gareth Southgate reportedly contemplating including Mainoo in the squad for the upcoming matches against Brazil and Belgium next month.

With the selection of Jordan Henderson and Kalvin Phillips consistently scrutinised by fans and the media, it seems there is a real opportunity for Mainoo to cement himself in the England set-up with the Euros just around the corner.

It's not just his on-field performances that are raising eyebrows either, as the United man demonstrated what a great character he is in training on Monday morning.

The teenage midfielder made a surprise appearance at an Under-8s training session on Monday, having finished his recovery work with the senior squad following their victory at Luton.

Mainoo, who currently holds the title of United's young player of the year, spent the next hour chatting with the kids and engaging with them during the session.

The pre-academy group had the opportunity to observe the first-team training session in the morning. Afterward, the players took photos with the youngsters and signed autographs.

This kind of attitude demonstrates exactly what kind of character Mainoo is, and bodes well for the future of both Manchester United and England to have such a humble young prospect coming through.
