Rangnick demotes Man United star to Under-23s

Ralf Rangnick, Manchester United’s interim manager, is said to have demoted Hannibal Mejbri to the club’s Under-23s.

His Manchester United debut display against Liverpool in April was praised by the club’s legend, Gary Neville, but didn’t go down well with Rangnick.

According to ESPN, Rangnick took a dim view of Mejbri’s antics and subsequently relegated him to the Under-23s.

Rangnick has not included Mejbri in the matchday squad for any of Man United’s games since then, instead opting for senior players whose futures lie elsewhere.

Mejbri joined Manchester United from Monaco in a €5 million deal when he was just 15 years old in 2019.

The highly-rated midfielder has made an impression at youth level, but he has had to wait for his Premier League debut.
