Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmes Hannibal Mejbri will debut for Manchester United against Wolves
The Red Devils end their Premier League campaign away at the Molineux in what will be Nuno Espirito Santo’s final game in charge of the club. With second place secure and the Europa League final to come, Solskjaer could use the match to test out his tactics.
The Norwegian looks set to rest his first-team stars and give youth a run out on Sunday. The likes of Amad Diallo, Anthony Elanga and Shola Shoretire have all made their first-team bows this season and are in contention to feature tomorrow.
Another promising youngster Hannibal Mejbri is however set to make his debut. One of the highly-rated talents at the club, the Frenchman’s first-team bow was delayed due to injury.
“Hannibal and Shola, both of them will be involved. Maybe we can get some minutes in them.”
Having won the club’s reserve team player of the year award, Mejbri could end the season on a high by making his first senior appearance in red.
Another player who will feature is winger Daniel James. The Welshman missed the last few games due to injury but is not back in training. Whether the 23-year-old will stake a claim to start in Gdansk remains to be seen. (h/t Man Utd)
Two first-team stars who will however miss out are Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire. Both players are working towards a return against Villarreal. As things stand, the former has a better chance of making it compared to the latter.
“Anthony won’t make this one for the squad so Harry and Anthony are still working hard to be available for the final.”
