The fans went crazy when he did that and that was amazing”-Football Fans are making the same point after Kobbie Mainoo’s first half performance against Liverpool that shocked the world.

Fans are all saying the same thing about Kobbie Mainoo’s first-half performance against Liverpool.


Mainoo was among United’s star performances in the opening 45 minutes against Liverpool.


While the Old Trafford club claimed an early 1-0 lead through Scott McTominay, it was the Scotland international’s midfield partner, Mainoo, who put in the more eye-catching displays.

The teenager was a calm and confident presence throughout, despite his side conceding two goals on the cusp of half-time to go in at the break 2-1 down.


Mainoo’s display led fans on social media to, once again, question why the youngster had been left out of the most recent England squad.

“So we think ideally, we should allow him that space to develop at his own speed. He’s not at the point in terms of number of games that Jude (Bellingham) and Bukayo (Saka) were when they came in for the first tim”But I repeat, he’s doing really well for a young player. He’s a good footballer, you can see that. And he’s getting some fabulous experience with Manchester United at the moment. And he looks a really good character.”e.ainoo.tw…”
