Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag says Kobbie Mainoo deserved his debut
According to the BBC, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag who was unable to manage his team from the touchline against Everton due to his suspension, is full of praise for the young debutant Kobbie Mainoo.
Kobbie Mainoo made an incredible full Premier League debut for Manchester United in their victory against Everton, and Erik ten Hag anticipates that his growth will continue.
Ten Hag said:
“We know we’re in a transition. We have to develop players. Kids have to deserve it. It was painful for us when he got a bad injury in pre-season but now he’s back. He’s a good boy, very mature. He showed it today.”
After missing four months of action due to a knee injury, Mainoo made a spectacular comeback to lead the team at Goodison Park, where United won 3-0, their biggest league victory of the year and their first away from home by a three-goal margin since October 2021. Mainoo was named Man of the Match.
When Mainoo suffered his injury in the preseason friendly against Real Madrid in Houston, Ten Hag had accommodated him in the same midfield as Casemiro and Mason Mount. Mainoo has the capacity to establish himself as a vital member of Ten Hag’s squad very soon.
Everton supporters staged a furious demonstration at Goodison Park protesting the Premier League’s decision to dock them 10 points for breaking sustainability and profitability regulations, but United took the lead in the third minute.
However, it seems that Ten Hag has proven to be a man of his word by elevating Garnacho and now Mainoo, fulfilling a major promise he made during his administration at United. We believe that promoting the youngsters can go a long way in helping the squad.
Being only two points behind Spurs in sixth place in the league makes this victory over Everton extremely important. However, we were able to bring our goal difference down from negative to zero thanks to the outstanding goal and performance of our young players at Goodison. We are aware of the significant impact these minor adjustments have later in the season.
