There were more messages too in response to Mainoo’s Instagram post, with Facundo Pellistri, Tyrell Malacia, Anthony Elanga and Zidane Iqbal among those to congratulate the teenager.

Midfield talent Mainoo could soon get more opportunities amid injuries to Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek.

The long-term deal and admiration from his teammates will give Mainoo even more confidence to take the next step if he gets the chance.
