Aston Villa have officially signed Manchester United central back Tuanzebe on loan for the next season. Tuanzebe was pleased to rejoin the player and said:
“It’s great to be back. This is a big, big club and to represent it again is a big honour for me.It made perfect sense for me to return for the season ahead. I know my way around the place now and owe a lot to the great people who’ve really looked after me.It was a no-brainer and now the ambition remains the same as last season – to reach the Premier League.I believe the squad we have here are more than capable of achieving it and playing at that level.”
Tuanzebe is an academy graduate of Manchester United. He joined Aston Villa last season on a season-long loan. However, He was not able to make a significant amount of appearances because of injuries. Tuanzebe is highly regarded by Manchester United hierarchy and Jose Mourinho was quoted ( after Tuanzebe’s official debut) as:
“10 minutes is enough! The potential is there, you see it immediately.”
Despite being a center back, Tuanzebe can also play as a right back as well as holding midfielder. He is an aggressive player who has great tactical sense and electrifying pace.
