Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce says that Manchester United's borrower, Axel Tuanzebe, will have the opportunity to play in his second loan period at Villa Park. The twenty-year-old made five appearances with Villa in the league last season, but his loan period was hampered by injuries. And Bruce says there are outstanding deals for the defender – and this will be music for the ears of United's manager Jose Mourinho. "It was disappointing for him last year because we only saw little glimpses of him and he got injured twice," he said ahead of the Villa game against Wigan. "It's a very unfinished business, it's someone who will adapt to any part of the fourth part." Right-back, left-back, central defender, even in the middle of the court if you want him to be the defender. "He is happy to be back because it is a bit of an unfinished business and we are happy to have it again.
"He's here to play and he will." Tuanzebe is held in high esteem at Old Trafford, especially by manager Mourinho. The Portuguese handed the young man his debut in the United States against Wigan in the FA Cup in January 2017, before giving him his first appearance in the Premier League with a departure to Arsenal in the same season. And the 20-year-old was tasked with playing a key role in the Emirates: Alexis Sanchez.

"The manager gave me a job – stay with him and I felt I was doing it well enough," said Tuanzebe. "It's nice to have the opportunity to play – the manager gives you a job and you have to prove that you can trust yourself for future games." It's all about the manager because he gave me the opportunity. ".
