Manchester United teenage sensation Teden Mengi has hinted that he may make his first-team debut in their upcoming Premier League fixture against Southampton.

Mengi, who captains Man Utd’s Under-18 side, was earlier promoted to the senior squad after fellow center-backs Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones suffered injuries before, during the three-month coronavirus break. While the 22-year-old Tuanzebe is out for the rest of the season, Jones is not expected to return to training until later this month.

Since Premier League’s return, June, Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had limited options in defense as he has gone with Victor Lindelof alongside captain Harry Maguire in all the games with Eric Bailly as the only other fully fit recognized center-back in his squad.

Meanwhile, Mengi has played 14 games for the U23 side this season, captained in all the four FA Youth and his impressive performances have caught Solskjaer’s attention. Moreover, Mengi has further impressed the boss by captaining the academy side in their four FA Youth Cup games.

Ahead of Man Utd’s clash against Southampton, Mengi posted an hourglass emoji alongside hashtag #mufc, suggesting that he could well make his Man Utd’s senior debut during the game. The same tweet also had some of his best bits from the current campaign leaving the Man Utd fans hoping to watch him finally make his Man Utd debut after he was left as an unused substitute their Europa League clash against Astana last December.
