Nigeria-eligible Defender Makes His First Appearance This Season For Manchester United U23s


The Nigeria-eligible defender makes his first appearance this season for Manchester United U23s on Monday evening.


The right-back was named in the starting line-up in a Premier League 2 Division 2 clash against Stoke City at Harrison Park (Leek, Staffordshire) but unfortunately for him and the Red Devils, they fell to a 3-1 loss to the Potters.


Olosunde last featured for Manchester United in a Premier League International Cup game against Villarreal on February 27, 2018, prior to his comeback game today.

Against Stoke City, he was yellow carded in the 18th minute for tugging on the back of Verlinden’s shirt.

The 20-year-old, Olosunde will now turn his attention to United U23s next match against Reading next Monday after coming through his comeback game unscathed in ninety minutes of action.

He was overlooked for a first-team debut due to his long spell on the sidelines.
