Manchester United loanee in trouble as Sevilla issues statement after omitting him from the team

Manchester United loanee’s start with Sevilla has not gone according to plan

Manchester United loanee Hannibal Mejbri has not had the dream start that he was hoping for during his time at Sevilla. The Red Devil has just recently joined the La Liga side.

After featuring for just 28 minutes during his first game for Sevilla, 21-year-old Mejbri was benched for the team’s second game, which was against Atletico Madrid. After questions were raised about him being omitted the La Liga side released a statement.

The only reason behind the Tunisian midfielder’s switch to La Liga was a lack of playing time under Erik ten Hag. Now that his stint in Spain is off to a rocky start things might not even improve for the 21-year-old.

Here’s what club manager Quique Sánchez Flores had to say about the situation. (h\t Manchester Evening News)

“After being with him, talking to him and having seen his first minutes in Girona, we are going to give him the necessary space to understand where he is, that he is at Sevilla and what it means,”

It seems like the Spanish manager wants Mejbri to properly grasp his situation at the club. He went on to say that the player needs to look at things from the outside before he is asked to return to the squad.

Flores also said that he would like to see whether the Tunisian properly applies himself or not. However, he does have faith in the player as he ended his statement by saying that in the end, Mejbri will understand what the team wants out of him.

Hannibal Mejbri has his work cut out for him. If he can’t grow to be the player that Sevilla wants him to be, the La Liga side will surely not exercise the buy option included in his loan deal.
