Manchester United loanee Hannibal outlines targets for the season at Birmingham City

Manchester United loanee Hannibal Mejbri has outlined his goals for the season whilst on loan at Birmingham City. 

The 19-year-old was called up to represent Tunisia at the World Cup in Qatar but made just one 10-minute cameo as the national team failed to qualify from the group stage.

He has, however, started nine of Birmingham’s 16 Championship matches so far this season and has featured as a substitute in the other seven. Hannibal has picked up five assists across his appearances.

The teenager made his first-team debut for United against Wolverhampton Wanderers in a 2-1 away win on May 23, 2021, under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Interim manager Ralf Rangnick then promoted the youngster to permanent first-team training later in the season and granted him game time against Liverpool and Crystal Palace.

Hannibal has outlined his targets for his loan spell in the Midlands, with Birmingham currently sitting 14th in the league.

He told Birmingham Mail: “I didn’t play a lot in the World Cup so I was happy to come back here and get some minutes and show what I can do. For the rest of the season, I want to go to the top six for the play-offs and I think that’s the objective of all the clubs and all the fans.

“We think about this but we need to think as well, about the small details and get better as a team. I came here for the season. We speak after every game [with Manchester United] – and, for the moment, nothing [about going back]. I am enjoying playing for this club, I enjoy the fans, now we just need to work on the small details to be a better team.”

He lauded the support from the St. Andrew’s faithful, adding: “It’s good when the supporters are with us. It helps us when they are singing a lot. we are going to try and win [against Reading] for them and try our best to go to the top six for them.”
