Teden Mengi,

Mengi training at Carrington

Wednesday 04 May 2022 17:00

Young defender Teden Mengi has been training again with Manchester United's first team at Carrington.

The centre-back is currently on loan at Championship side Birmingham City, along with Reds team-mate Tahith Chong, but has been sidelined due to injury.

The Midlanders end their campaign with a home game against Blackburn Rovers at St Andrews on Saturday.

Teden is integrating back into first-team training but, unfortunately, will not be ready in time for Blues' final match.

The second-city club have kindly given permission for Teden to remain training with United, with our season not ending until 22 May, in order to regain full fitness.

Former youth-team skipper Mengi made 10 appearances for Lee Bowyer's side before sustaining a hamstring problem in March.

The 20-year-old appeared for United's senior side in the 1-1 draw with Young Boys back in December and will look to be fit and raring to go for the pre-season campaign.
