Manchester United: Fans react to Axel Tuanzebe claim

Manchester United: Fans react to Axel Tuanzebe claim -Manchester United

Axel Tuanzebe’s agent believes Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard and his rivalry with Manchester United impacted the defender’s stay at Villa Park, ESPN report.

And, as to be expected, a number of United fans have been reacting to the comments on social media.

How many signings do United need this month?







The 24-year-old recently cut short his season-long loan in the Midlands to join Napoli on a temporary basis.

Tuanzebe failed to make a start after Gerrard took over from Dean Smith and played just eight minutes of Premier League football since the end of November.

As reported by ESPN, Tuanzebe’s agent and brother Dimitri believes that Gerrard’s Liverpool association and therefore rivalry with United impacted the centre-back’s chances at Villa Park.

“Following the arrival of Steven Gerrard at Villa Park, it felt as if the rivalry between Man United and Liverpool came to life.”

Tuanzebe’s contract at Old Trafford expires in 18 months time, with ESPN adding that the defender is still highly thought of in Manchester.
