Manchester United

Roy Keane offers his assessment of Manchester United rookie Kobbie Mainoo: “One thing I’ve spotted.”

Kobbie Mainoo, a young kid for Man United, is now the youngest player to represent the Reds against Liverpool in the Premier League.

Kobbie Mainoo was cautioned by former Manchester United captain Roy Keane not to take risks in and around his own box, but Keane praised Mainoo’s inclusion in the squad for the match against Liverpool.

At Old Trafford, Mainoo is highly regarded and was predicted to have a breakthrough season in the preseason. The teenager’s injury versus Real Madrid in the US derailed the Reds’ intentions to completely integrate him.

Erik ten Hag, though, has honored his pledge to give Mainoo another chance since his return. The midfielder was heralded as a breakthrough for his ability to take the ball deep and advance play when he made his league debut against Everton last month.

Although Keane was delighted with what he saw against Everton, he gave Mainoo some advice prior to Sunday’s kickoff at Anfield. He said to Sky Sports: “We have seen him in a few games; at Everton, he made good decisions and passed the ball well, but it’s like chalk and cheese, playing at Everton and Liverpool.” They clearly have a lot of faith and trust in him because he is a pleasant person.

“He was taking too many touches and chances in and around his own box when he was playing against Everton, and you have to be careful here at Anfield today because they will punish you,” I saw.

“However, it’s good to have a young man here. He must, of course, become accustomed to playing in these settings if he is to play for Manchester United in the future.”
