Kobbie Mainoo sends Man United fans 3-word message as new contract details emerge



| Last Updated:


Kobbie Mainoo has excelled so far this season for Manchester United and could earn an improved contract at the end of the season.

Mainoo, 18, was the hero for Erik ten Hag’s men on Thursday evening after he scored a last-gasp winning goal against Wolves to secure a dramatic 4-3 victory.

United supporters have quickly become accustomed to the teenager’s calm and composed style in possession. That was no different when he galloped past the Wolves press before stroking the ball into the far corner of the net.

Even without the goal, though, Mainoo impressed in his general play once again at the Molineux. He has been one of the team’s most consistent players this season since he made his first start against Everton in November.

Mainoo won the club’s Player of the Month award for his performances across the month of January. He took to Instagram after the victory against Wolves and the award to send a clear message.

The teenager is not getting ahead of himself – he made that clear in his post-match interview – and he is taking things one step at a time.

Uploading a catalogue onto Instagram, which included a video of his goal and an image of him holding the Player of the Month award, Mainoo’s caption read: “Brick by brick.”

According to MailOnline, it has been the way he’s adapted to the first-team environment, showing confidence and composure beyond his years, which has most impressed the staff and teammates at United.

Rasmus Højlund described Mainoo as a “generational talent” after his winning goal on Thursday, whilst Bruno Fernandes was also extremely complimentary.

The aforementioned report added that the teenager is in line for an improved contract in the summer to reward his breakthrough season at Old Trafford.

He signed his first professional contract in May 2022, and whilst United sources are not discussing the prospect of another one yet, the report states that Mainoo will be offered improved terms at the end of the season, in keeping with United’s policy towards rising academy stars.
