Manchester United youngster Hannibal Mejbri blamed for his role in red card

Manchester United hopeful Hannibal Mejbri has been criticised for the role he played in a red card incident on Saturday afternoon.

Hannibal, 19, joined Championship side Birmingham on loan in the summer transfer window and has gradually begun to establish himself in their first-team squad.

The Tunisian international is yet to start a match for his new side but has made four appearances from the bench, the latest coming this weekend against Coventry.

Hannibal had only been on the pitch for twenty minutes when he got involved in an altercation with Coventry midfielder Gustavo Hamer as they tangled for the ball, which resulted in his opponent being shown a red card.

Coventry manager Mark Robins accepted his midfielder ‘has to learn’ from his latest dismissal after appearing to kick-out at Hannibal, one that will earn him a four-game ban, but believes the United youngster played a key role in the incident.

“I didn’t see it in real time,” said after the match. “I have seen it subsequently and it looked to me like Mejbri has grabbed hold of his legs, grabbed hold of him and then rolled and he’s done whatever he has done and you can’t really see from what I have looked at. But the eagle-eyed officials have seen it and seen fit to send him off. And it’s violent conduct so he misses four games.”
