Mainoo plaque on display at Carrington

Manchester United's 2022/23 Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year, Kobbie Mainoo, is now represented in the building named after the great man at the club's Carrington training ground.

Kobbie was handed the prestigious award after a breakthrough campaign that saw him handed his first senior appearance for the Reds, and make his Premier League bow.

As is the tradition, the winner's picture is presented on the wall at the Jimmy Murphy Centre at our training ground, as was the case for Alejandro Garnacho last season after his 2021/22 success and for those that came before him.

Kobbie Mainoo made three first-team appearances in the 2022/23 season.

Mainoo is the latest Red to join the list, with the likes of Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs also among the previous victors.

The 18-year-old was building his reputation, playing regularly for the first team during our pre-season campaign, before suffering an injury early on in United's Tour 2023 clash with Real Madrid in Houston.

Having started our matches against Leeds United, Lyon and Arsenal prior to the game versus the Spanish giants, this was a blow for the youngster - and United.

The Academy graduate is expected to be unavailable for the first part of the new season.

Upon his return, we hope to see Mainoo make further great strides at the club, following what was an impressive campaign last time out.

We wish you the best for your recovery, Kobbie.
