Rangnick: Hannibal is very talented and part of Manchester United’s DNA


German coach Ralf Rangnick is looking forward to the promising Tunisian player Hannibal Majbri, who is in the youth ranks, joining the first team permanently before the end of this year, according to the club’s official website today, Friday.

Hannibal resumed his training with the team yesterday, Thursday, after his participation with the Tunisian team in the Arab Cup hosted by Qatar, during which the “Carthage Eagles” lost in the final against Algeria 0-2 in the overtime period.

Rangnick said – in statements carried by the club’s official website – “Hannibal trained for the first time here since I came after his return from the Arab Cup. Unfortunately for us and him, he will leave us again to participate in the African Cup of Nations next January.”

Arab Cup Hannibal’s start

18-year-old Hannibal showed great levels with the Tunisian national team during the Arab Cup matches in Qatar; He won the best player award in two matches and contributed to the Carthage Eagles reaching the final.

“I watched the final before he was substituted and I am fully aware that we have another very talented player coming from the youth team, and I hope after the African Nations Cup that he can train with us regularly and be part of our group,” the coach continued.

Rangnick’s policies are based on a commitment to support emerging talent from the club’s academy, and this has enabled players such as Charlie Savage, Zidane Iqbal, Taden Manji, Shula Schuetter and Anthony Ilanga to make their debut against Swiss side Young Boys in the Champions League.

“I think this has always been part of the club’s DNA and it has been under Sir Alex Ferguson for 27 years,” Rangnick said.

“It’s not just about the youth, it’s also about talent and having the right personality and mentality. If these things come together, of course I will thank as many of these young players as possible, we already have 3, 4 or 5 in our team and it’s important for me to develop these players.” .
