Teden Mengi compared to De Ligt but Ole preaches caution


The 18-year-old spoke to MUTV after the win in Salford and said: “All in all, it was an out-and-out performance from the lads. It was a really good team performance and I am proud of everyone that was on the pitch today – from back to front.

“We, as defenders, get a real buzz off a clean sheet so we’re happy as a unit but, as a team, we’re happy with it and it puts us in a good position. This tournament is key for us, very key, because it’s a really big tournament to play in, especially for us young lads, playing first-team sides. It was a brilliant win, especially against Salford, and real big for us as it was nice to beat them.

“It’s a real honour to wear the armband. I wore it for the Under-18s and, this season, for the Under-23s. To step on the pitch and lead the boys is brilliant.”

Mengi played at left-back due to an injury in the warm-up to Lukasz Bejger, showing his versatility.
