Tuanzebe, who has suffered a number of injuries, kept Kylian Mbappe and Neymar quiet in his first game in 10 months as United overcame Paris St Germain 2-1 in the Champions League on Tuesday and Solskjaer was full of praise for the 22-year-old centre back. headtopics.com

"I'm pleased for him. Now it's about getting consistency in his performances, he's got to stay injury-free but I think he can kick on, he's a leader."He can play right back, centre back, midfield, he's a boy who takes responsibility for his own development and he's doing everything he can to have a long career at United and get that consistency."
Solskjaer brushed off media reports that the club had warned young forward Mason Greenwood about his discipline, saying that the 19-year-old was a target because of his early success and transgressions on international duty.AdvertisementAdvertisementGreenwood and Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden were sent home from England duty last month after breaching COVID-19 protocols in Iceland.
British media reports said United had reminded Greenwood of his responsibilities following his problems, which also included poor timekeeping."I'm not concerned with Mason making a target for himself. He came in and played fantastic... He made a mistake for England and suddenly the English press go after him," Solskjaer said of the player, who scored 17 goals in all competitions last season. headtopics.com
"I have to disappoint you... he's never late for training. I've seen some ex-United players talking about him and they don't know what they're talking about."(Reporting by Shrivathsa Sridhar in Bengaluru; Editing by Toby Davis)Read more: CNA »
