Teden Mengi.

Biography

Athletic defender who made his Under-18s bow in the 2017/18 season and finished with three appearances at that level to his name.

Starting the final league match of the campaign against Liverpool, he produced an accomplished performance against opponents with far more experience and shone at the heart of the back four. A local lad with leadership qualities, he really made his mark in the Under-18s team as a first-year scholar after previously captaining the Under-16s. The centre-back finished the 2018/19 campaign with 21 appearances to his name and experience of competing in the FA Youth Cup for the Reds. He broke into the Under-23s the following season, helping Neil Wood's side to consecutive victories in the Leasing.com Trophy and a strong start to the Premier League 2 campaign. A number of solid showings earned Mengi a position in the travelling first-team squad for United's match against FC Astana in the UEFA Europa League in November 2019, although he was an unused substitute during the Reds' 2-1 defeat.
