In the latest edition of UTD Podcast, recorded at the Aon Training Complex last week, Tuanzebe recalls how living on his own in the Midlands helped him to both focus and mature, as the Villans gained promotion back to the Premier League.

“It helped me just mature even more,” Axel told hosts Helen Evans and Sam Homewood.
“Just being by myself there, it was a very bog-standard daily routine. Come into training early, be there very late. Home, eat, sleep, train every day.
