Fans react to seeing Tyrell Malacia for the first time this year after not training once all season

Tyrell Malacia was spotted celebrating Manchester United’s FA Cup final win at Wembley – and fans were delighted to see him again after a lengthy lay-off.

The 24-year-old defender, who signed from Feyenoord in 2022 for around £15 million, has not played for United since undergoing surgery on a knee injury last summer.

In fact, the Dutch left-back last featured for the Reds on May 28, 2023.

Malacia was said to be closing in on a return to first-team action in February but a month later, Erik ten Hag confirmed that he would likely miss the rest of the 2023/24 campaign.

“I think it’s going to be difficult for this season to be available,” he said at the time

But on Saturday afternoon, he joined his United teammates on the Wembley pitch after they won this season’s FA Cup following a 2-1 win over Manchester City.

Fans were thrilled to see the defender after such a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

One said: “Can’t tell you how happy I am to see Malacia,” while another commented: Is that Tyrell Malacia in the line for a medal????”

A third wrote: “Good to see Tyrell Malacia out there with the United team celebrating their FA Cup win. Hopefully we get to see him in action next season.”
