Former Manchester United winger Lee Sharp has demanded that Kobbie Mainoo must go to EURO 2024 with England following his world-class form at Old Trafford.

Kobbie Mainoo‘s time in Manchester United‘s first team has garnered significant acclaim from fans and pundits alike, including club legends such as Roy Keane.

Rapidly establishing himself as a pivotal figure under Erik ten Hag‘s management, Mainoo has consistently showcased his prowess and adaptability on the field, making meaningful contributions both defensively and offensively.

Throughout the season, the teenager has netted three remarkable goals, each showcasing his skill in diverse scenarios. Notably, his standout moment arrived during the 2-2 draw against Liverpool.

Mainoo has surpassed many expectations with his impressive blend of technical ability, astuteness, and unwavering dedication, especially amidst a challenging season for the club. This has led some to press that he should be with England at EURO 2024.

Although some have raised concerns that Mainoo lacks the experience to play in a major tournament after just 28 senior appearances to his name, former United winger Lee Sharpe believes he should be.

“I think Kobbie Mainoo needs to be in the England team with the season that he’s had – I think he’s been an incredible fighter this year for Manchester United,” Sharpe told Footy Accumulators.

“I think for an 18-year-old, his decision making, his ball control, his passing, and the goal he scored in the depths of the game against Wolves was phenomenal. So he’s got the ability to beat people score a late goal, and find an opportunity to create.

“I think he’s an all-round player, and he can go as far as he wants, really. He just needs to keep his head down, keep playing and keep enjoying his football.

“I think that when you’re a young player, it’s always good to be around senior players and seeing how they train, how they perform and how they prepare. So yeah, I don’t think it could do him any harm at all. I’d like to think he’d get a few minutes on the pitch as well. I think he warrants time on the pitch. I think he’s been that good this season.”
