Bruno Fernandes message to Kobbie Mainoo

Kobbie Mainoo has earned the trust of manager Erik ten Hag already, and the Manchester United players believe in him too.

Mainoo’s outstanding performance in preseason in a win over Arsenal showed what he was capable of, giving a glimpse into the future which was unfortunately interrupted by injury. But that was just a brief delay.

The youngster is on the verge of getting his season started, and captain Bruno Fernandez is already cheerleading.

After Mainoo posted a picture to instagram of the pair training together, Fernandes responded with a caption reading, “Star boy”.

Kobbie Mainoo eligible for UEFA Youth League

Erik ten Hag’s comments about Kobbie Mainoo getting some minutes in the tank this week might not necessarily mean the first team.

There are plenty of midfield options already for tonight, and while United fans would like to see Mainoo on the bench, there is an alternative.

Mainoo, 18, is eligible to play in the UEFA Youth League, and this is a way to ease the teenager back to action.

Omari Forson and Dan Gore, who both trained with the first team squad yesterday and were on the bench against Bayern, each played in the UEFA Youth League against Galatasaray.

Mainoo is not necessarily above it. He needs minutes, and this is one solution to accelerating his comeback. 70-80 minutes at this level could be valuable, if Erik ten Hag decides he is not quite ready to play a meaningful role tonight against Copenhagen.

But if the manager wants him as a game-changer, Mainoo will be happy to step in.
