A Unified Fan Consensus Emerges on Hannibal Mejbri’s First-Half Performance Against Newcastle
Manchester Uniteds fanbase has been unanimous in its assessment of Hannibal Mejbri’s performance during the first half against Newcastle United.
Mejbri returned to the starting lineup for Manchester United in the Carabao Cup encounter with Newcastle, where he took up a central midfield role alongside Casemiro. Notably, both players received cautions from the referee within the opening 18 minutes of the match.
Mejbri’s first booking occurred during a 14th-minute aerial duel with Sean Longstaff. Subsequently, the young midfielder executed a rather ill-advised challenge on Emile Kraft, narrowly escaping a second yellow card.
On various social media platforms, Manchester United supporters collectively voiced their observations about the Tunisian international. They acknowledged and praised his intensity but emphasized the need for him to temper his aggression.
One commenter remarked, “I hold a favorable view of Hannibal, although he ought to refine his aggressive tendencies.”
Another tweet humorously noted, “Hannibal may need a reminder that while aggression is commendable, this is not a video game like Street Fighter.”
A third commentator expressed curiosity, stating, “Is Hannibal making a concerted effort to receive a red card?”
Finally, a concerned fan opined, “It might be prudent for Ten Hag to substitute Hannibal; his current style of play in the midfield poses a considerable risk of a red card. It’s akin to playing with only two and a half midfielders.”
