Who is Habeeb Ogunneye?

Habeeb Ogunneye? is a professional footballer who plays for Manchester United.

Ogunneye is currently featuring for United’s academy sides. He has recently made the step up to under-21s, following the sale of Marc Jurado in the summer meaning he needed to step up to the next level, and has started the last two games.

Amid an injury crisis, we may see Ogunneye entering the realms of the first-team squad fringes much sooner than we expected. Erik ten Hag may be forced to at least have him in the matchday squad soon following a recent injury to Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Where and when was Habeeb Ogunneye born?

Ogunneye was born in London, England on November 12th, 2005.

He has chosen to play for England as his national side – although does also have Nigerian heritage.

What position does he play?

Habeeb Ogunneye is a right-back who likes to get forward and join the attack. He can also play as a wing-back.

How good is Habeeb Ogunneye?

His debut for United’s under-18s came in 2021 when he was just 15. In his first season, he made nine appearances for United’s under-18s side, providing two assists – including one on his first start.

He has already made the step up to the under-21s at the age of just 17 – so is a really bright prospect.
