Loads of Man Utd fans make Axel Tuanzebe plea after Aston Villa promotion

Manchester United loanee Axel Tuanzebe’s Aston Villa side have been promoted to the Premier League, after beating Derby 2-1 in the play-off final at Wembley.

Tuanzebe, 21, started the huge Championship clash and proved a key figure in the Midland club’s success.

The centre-back has been a mainstay in Dean Smith’s side all season in his loan spell, earning high praise for excellent performances in defence. He has made 30 appearances this season (whoscored), gaining valuable first-team experience in a notoriously tough division.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now has a decision to make on whether to keep the young defender at Old Trafford, or whether to loan him out again to Aston Villa, where he can play regular Premier League football.

With the Reds’ clear defensive frailties, you would think that there is no reason Tuanzebe can’t push for a place in United’s squad next season, if he is given the chance to impress in pre-season.

United have been linked with Ajax captain Matthjis De Ligt and Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly this summer, though it still looks unlikely either of these deals will be pulled off.

Many Reds on twitter have called for Tuanzebe to be promoted to United’s first team next season, but there is a recognition that another season out on loan could also continue the youngster’s development.
