Ahead of Manchester United’s League Cup semi-final against Hull, Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Axel Tuanzebe could feature. The 19-year-old has been training with the first team this week in preparation for the potential game time.

He can. We lost Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay, two players who didn’t play many minutes or many matches for us. They were two players from the squad, so we need numbers and probably Axel is one of the boys that’s in the Academy who is more close to playing with us.

So we have brought him up to give him more experience, to make the first team more natural for him in case we need him to play in the upcoming matches and month, so he can be more adapted to us.
