MANCHESTER UNITED starlet Teden Mengi appeared to criticise his own teammate Hannibal Mejbri after their 6-1 defeat to Chelsea.
The Red Devils U23 captain seemed to take exception to the midfielder sharing a picture of himself with Blues youngster Pierre Ekwah.

Both Mengi and Mejbri started United’s 6-1 drubbing against Chelsea that conceded two goals within the first two minutes.
Tino Anjorin bagged two of Chelsea’s six goals, as did Marcel Lewis, while Jude Soonsup-Bell and Charlie Brown both notched as well.

Substitute Joe Hugill pulled back a late consolation for United.
Before the defeat to the west Londoners, the young Devils had only lost one of their previous eight games but now sit ninth in a 13-team table.
And Mengi reacted after Mejbri posted a picture on Instagram alongside Chelsea teen Ekwah, one of his France U16 teammates.
The 18-year-old said in a since-deleted comment: “The reason why we lost, too many friends and not enough enemies.”
Mejbri appeared to hit back at the defender by replying: “It’s good that you said WE”.
Yet Mengi later added: “It’s a team sport not an individual one.”
