Manchester United boss, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, has stressed the need for Axel Tuanzebe to maintain the level of performance he put on against Paris Saint-Germain in midweek.
The 22 year old has drawn praise from many after showing solidity at the back when deployed in the absence of Harry Maguire, who had picked up a minor injury.
And when asked about the possibility of him starting more for the Red Devils, Solskjaer told the media, “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, 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 have to have a long career at #mufc and get that consistency.
“It was a great performance [against PSG] by a kid who’s not played for 10 months, delighted for him, such a professional character, he wants everything, he works really hard, been really really thorough in rehab.”
Tuanzebe remains in line to start against Chelsea this weekend, with Maguire still not a certainty due to his condition.
