“Better Give us back our Mainoo. Why must they treat him like that? He is the best youngster in England and he deserves the best”-Man Utd starlet Kobbie Mainoo forced to follow strict rule when training as a youngster

Manchester United’s rising star, Mainoo, has enjoyed a sensational breakout season, earning him a well-deserved call-up to the England squad ahead of two international friendlies against Brazil and Belgium.


The 18-year-old made his debut start for Manchester United in November against Everton, and since then, his stellar performances have secured him a spot in the starting lineup on a regular basis. Unlike his fellow United teenager, Alejandro Garnacho, known for his raw energy and unpredictable brilliance, Mainoo stands out for his composure and maturity on the field.


Initially overlooked by Gareth Southgate, Mainoo’s standout performance in the FA Cup against Liverpool proved pivotal, leading to his promotion to the senior team. Southgate had cited Mainoo’s lack of experience as the reason for his initial omission, but the young talent’s consistent display of skill and poise has since changed the manager’s mind.


Mainoo’s rise to prominence is not without precedent, as he has been accustomed to playing above his age category throughout his youth career. At Cheadle & Gatley, his coach, Steve Vare, implemented special rules to level the playing field due to Mainoo’s exceptional talent. Despite originally being deployed as a striker or winger at academy level, Mainoo seamlessly transitioned to commanding the midfield in the 2020/21 season, showcasing his adaptability and football intelligence.


As Mainoo prepares to represent his country on the international stage, many anticipate that he could become a key player for England in the upcoming Euros, just three months away. His journey from youth prodigy to national team contender exemplifies his remarkable talent and potential in the world of football.
