Former Manchester United captain Antonio Valencia has revealed he hopes to see more of Hannibal Mejbri next season under new Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag.

19 year old Hannibal Mejbri made just two appearances for Manchester United last season.

Valencia told Manchester United’s official website: “I know his football and how well he has performed at Ajax.

“I am sure that with a full pre-season, he is going to be able to share his football with the players, and, all together, they will be able to make the fans happy.

“It is also great that he has previously worked with young talent, as we have a lot in our current squad.

“I loved Hannibal’s personality and his will to win tackles.

“He came on the pitch at Anfield with the idea of giving everything, and it should have been that way for everyone since the start of the game.

“He is a kid with great talent and I hope to see more of him soon.”
