Manchester United number-one David De Gea was spotted clapping team-mate Axel Tuanzebe mid-way through Tuesday’s important Champions League group game against Paris-Saint Germain.
Tuanzebe, 22, was recalled to the Reds’ starting side after fellow defenders Harry Maguire and Eric Bailly were both ruled out due to injuries.
The English centre-back put in a performance to remember and was arguably the best player on the pitch after his defensive masterclass ensured world-class duo Neymar Jnr and Kylian Mbappe were kept quiet all night.
Arguably Tuanzebe’s best moment against Paris-Saint Germain came when he made a last ditch tackle on Mbappe to prevent a clear goal-scoring oppotuntity.
In light of the United defender’s amazing covering run, keeper De Gea was spotted openly applauding his young team-mate’s defensive heroics.
