There are people inside Manchester United, who seem to think Axel Tuanzebe has it in him to grow to the same levels as club legends, Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic.

This is according to a reporter with The Athletic, who has been quoted as saying during an appearance on the Talk of the Devils’ podcast: “Tuanzebe is a player who Olé [Gunnar Solskjaer] really likes. There are people at the club who think he’s good enough to be top class – Ferdinand and Vidic class.”

While we can’t tell if this will happen, we can definitely agree that Tuanzebe is a class player, who has shown signs of leadership and improvement at United.

However, the 22 year old has a knack for getting injured often, which isn’t a good thing for his career. He’s currently ruled out for Man United after picking up an injury weeks ago, and is not expected back until September.
