Manchester United achieved a great victory vs. Everton with a score of 0:3. Kobbie Mainoo's performance especially impressed everyone. This 18-year-old defensive midfielder made his debut in the Premier League and has already shown that he is a huge boost for Manchester United.
Roy Keane, the legend of Manchester United, had only words of praise for Mainoo. ‘Unbelievable,’ Keane told Sky Sports, as quoted by METRO! ‘We don’t want to get too carried away but I’m sure we will.
He looked like he always had time on the ball today, his decision-making, in terms of when to go long when to go short, in terms of off the ball as well. What an all-round performance.' Roy Keane believes Erik ten Hag's decision to include him in the starting XI speaks volumes about his quality.
Watching friendly matches during the summer and his debut, many are optimistic about the future of Mainoo. ‘The club obviously think highly of him. With the build-up to the game today, coming to Everton, for the manager to put him in, he and the staff around the place obviously must trust him.
Good luck to the kid. He was outstanding. It’s a great start for him. Let’s hope he stays injury-free and gets a run of games for Man United because he looked a Man United type of player. Nice and brave, lots of courage.
I loved watching him.’
Gary Neville on Mainoo
Gary Neville also shared his opinion with Roy Keane. He emphasized that 18-year-old Mainoo was the best individual during the match. 'There’s an 18-year-old out there who looks more composed than anyone.
Mainoo has been Manchester United’s best player by a street. A brilliant, brilliant Premier League debut from him. ’ Many are looking forward to his next matches and expect even better things.
