Teden Mengi reveals Man Utd trio Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba are three leaders of team WhatsApp chat

, Teden Mengi reveals Man Utd trio Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba are three leaders of team WhatsApp chat

MANCHESTER UNITED starlet Teden Mengi has lifted the lid on who the leaders of the team’s WhatsApp chat are.

The England youth international joined Wayne Rooney’s Derby County on loan last month, having found himself on the fringes of the first-team set-up at Old Trafford.

Having been around Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s senior side for much of the last 12 months, however, Mengi knows just who rules the roost at United.

The 18-year-old told YouTube channel UMM: “There are a lot of leaders. Harry [Maguire] is one. Bruno [Fernandes], Paul [Pogba].

“They’re not chatting off. Because in that squad WhatsApp it’s like all to do with football, so they’re the vocal ones about that side.”

Having impressed for the Red Devils’ Under-23 side, Mengi found himself making his first-team debut against LASK in the Europa League last season.

On the occasion, he opened up: “The way I saw it was that was the team that I’ve grown up watching for years.

“And then I’m going on the pitch, making my debut for the team that I’ve been supporting for years. It’s mad.”

Following his taste of senior action, Mengi has largely had to make do with youth team football, and at times has captained United’s Under-23 side this season.

But he is set to gain more experience, having joined club legend Rooney at Derby County on loan last month.

Upon joining the Rams, Mengi gushed about his new manager: “He has been brilliant.

“As soon as I found out Derby were interested, Wayne was on the phone. He was telling me what the club is about and what he wants from me. He has been brilliant with me so far.”

Mengi is yet to make his debut for the Rams, but was included on the bench for their Championship clash at Rotherham last weekend.
