Hannibal Mejbri named Man United U23 Player of the Year


First-team on the horizon? Hannibal Mejbri beats out Shoretire and more to bag Man United award

 

Manchester United talent Hannibal Mejbri has, on Thursday, beaten out the competition, to secure the award for the club’s U23 Player of the Year.

Reds stint

Mejbri, 18, has been plying his trade in Manchester since the summer of 2019.

The French youth international, after being sought out by a host of Europe’s top clubs, eventually agreed to depart Monaco for Old Trafford, in a deal which could yet rise to around €10 million.

So, why did United agree to fork over such a considerable sum for such an unproven player?

Mejbri had long been making waves in his home country of France before departing for England, and it is not exactly hard to see why.

Across his 18 months+ with the Red Devils to date, the teenage sensation has gone on to establish himself as one of the most highly-regarded talents on the red half of Manchester.

Mejbri is an attacking midfielder by trade, who boasts all of the required characteristics to develop into a genuine star over the years ahead.

The former Monaco man boasts wonderful touch, vision, eye for goal, and the composure of a performer far beyond his years.

Perhaps what makes him such a special talent, though, is Mejbri’s attitude. The Frenchman has long been hailed for his work-rate, professionalism and willingness to get involved in the less glamorous side of the game, traits which bode well when it comes to his chances of carving out a lengthy career at the top level.

This season, Mejbri spent the majority of his time lining out for United’s U23 side, with whom he has linked up impressively with the likes of Shola Shoretire, and January arrival Amad Diallo:

All told, across 20 appearances for Neil Wood’s men, the 18-year-old racked up 4 goals and a hefty 9 assists.

Reds prize

Such exploits, meanwhile, saw Mejbri rewarded back in March, when it was confirmed that he had penned a new deal at Old Trafford:

The teen has also been spotted in training with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team squad on more than one occasion of late.

In turn, it is not at all out of the question that Mejbri could go on to emerge as a regular feature in the Red Devils’ senior setup next season.

And, as outlined above, on Thursday, the midfielder’s talents have been recognised once more.

This comes in the form of an individual accolade – Manchester United’s Denzil Haroun U23s Player of the Year award:

Speaking after bagging the latest prize of his fledgling career, Mejbri explained:

‘It’s a very proud moment for me and my family. I will say thank you to the coaches, to my team-mates and everyone who helped me. Thank you very much.’
