Axel Tuanzebe has made his long-awaited return to first-team training at Manchester United.
Tuanzebe has struggled with injuries throughout his career and his latest back problem has kept him sidelined since July. The centre-back hasn’t played a game for well over a year, with his last appearance coming for Napoli in a Copa Italia defeat to Fiorentina on January 13, 2022. He last played for United in the Europa League final loss to Villarreal in May 2021.
Now 25, Tuanzebe has been working hard to return to full fitness and resurrect his career at Old Trafford after enduring difficult spells on loan at Aston Villa and Napoli last season, where he only made a combined 13 appearances.
He returned to solo training last month and was placed on a personal training plan at Carrington, which included the use of a zero-gravity running machine to aid his recovery, while Erik ten Hag took his available squad to a training camp in Spain.
