It has been reported that Manchester United U19 coach Nicky Butt has likened Axel Tuanzebe to Nottingham Forest legend Des Walker.
Tuanzebe has made the first team bench this season.
Butt told the Manchester Evening News: “Axel you would say is a born captain, he is a leader and a really good lad. He is focused. He is the leader of the changing room in his age group. He is very pacy and a really good defender.
“He reminds me a lot of a Des Walker kind of player, very hard to go past. He is one of those you just don’t want to play against.
“He will go a long way. He has a lot to learn with the ball which is a difficult side of the game but his defensive side is very good.”
