Manchester United fans loved Hannibal Mejbri’s appearance against Liverpool, Gary Neville says he’s ‘proud’

Mejbri crushed Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita after being introduced in the 84th minute of Tuesday’s Premier League clash at Anfield.

He replaced Anthony Elanga and made an instant impression, showing energy and passion in the middle of the park.

The 19-year-old received a warning for his challenge on Henderson and risked a second yellow card when he hit Keita moments later.

Gary Neville loved what he saw from the Tunisian and was ‘proud’ of his effort, with Man United fans cheering his brief display.

“To be fair, at least the kid is showing something,” Neville said in the comments. “Honestly, it takes a kid to come and show the rest of them how to run for the ball and put up a challenge.

“I’m actually proud of him. Maybe he doesn’t like the idea of ​​Liverpool players passing him by. I wish the rest of them were the same.”

Mejbri was only making his second appearance for Man United, having made his league debut for the club against Wolves on the final day of last season.

Neville managed to pull a positive out of a crushing defeat for his former club as Liverpool won 4-0.

​Luis Diaz opened the scoring, with Mohamed Salah doubling Liverpool’s lead.

Sadio Mané and Salah won their team’s third and fourth in the second half and rose to the top of the league.
