Aaron Wan-Bissaka: I’ve become quite close to Axel Tuanzebe

Manchester United have made some excellent signings over the summer, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer prioritising the defence. Harry Maguire has already shown his quality, as has Aaron Wan-Bissaka who looks like an outstanding signing.

The 21-year-old right-back, signed from Crystal Palace, is relatively new to the world of professional football, while making the jump up from The Eagles to the Red Devils is a pretty steep one.

Thankfully, though, it seems as if everyone at Old Trafford has welcomed Wan-Bissaka with open arms. Especially Axel Tuanzebe, who has taken the budding right-back ‘under his wing’ while the pair have become ‘quite close’.

“I’ve become quite close to Axel Tuanzebe since joining the club. He’s taken me under his wing a bit, though I must admit the whole squad has been looking after me.” Wan-Bissaka told The Guardian.

“It has been really easy to come here and feel a part of things. Nobody’s left me out of anything; they all speak with me and interact and that’s really good.”

I know I’m in the minority here but I love a good footballing bromance. You can’t beat the Spanish trio’s friendship (Herrera, Mata, De Gea before the former left), while Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford always seem to have a laugh.

It’s just good to know that the dressing room is welcoming and feeling positive about the whole situation. I had my worries a year or so ago as it felt like the players were becoming divided. Credit to Solskjaer though, as he seems to have things right back on track.


Hopefully, Wan-Bissaka can continue to improve in that right-back slot and who knows, in the not too distant future he could be playing alongside his good pal Axel!
