Man Utd Fans Think They've Found A Future Captain In Axel Tuanzebe After 'Elite' Post-Match Interview

Man Utd Fans Think They've Found A Future Captain In Axel Tuanzebe After 'Elite' Post-Match Interview

Axel Tuanzebe has been labelled a future Manchester United captain after footage of his cool, calm and collected post-match interview emerged following the club's Champions League victory on Tuesday night.

The 22-year-old centre-back kept Paris Saint-Germain's talented forward line quiet for large spells of the Group H clash, using his pace and athleticism to outmuscle Kylian Mbappe on numerous occasions.

Before last night's clash at the Parc des Princes, Tuanzebe's last competitive appearance under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came against Colchester in a Carabao Cup clash in December.

But despite ten months away from first-team action, he gave a great account of himself, winning 100% of his aerial duels among other impressive stats.

It wasn't just Tuanzebe's performance on the pitch that grabbed people's attention. After the full-time whistle, the centre-back gave an incredibly composed and mature post-match interview in front of the cameras.

"For us, we came here to win," he said.

"We are in this competition to compete. We showed PSG respect but ultimately, we are the bigger team and we want to dominate and get the three points."

Tuanzebe was later asked about coming up against Neymar, Di Maria and Mbappe after his last performance against Colchester. His answer was mature and inspiring.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted with Tuanzebe's contribution against PSG.

"Axel did fantastic," said Solskjaer. "He has been out for 10 months so to put a performance up like this against Neymar and Mbappe, he almost surprised us as well.

"He is a tremendous defender, a great leader. We have known for years he is going to be a top player for us. To see the way he was it was unbelievable. Absolutely spot-on."

David de Gea also praised the young centre-back. "Unbelievable. He did really, really well. He has been in difficult moments but now he has showed he is capable of playing in big games."
