He feels honored to represent his parents’ country
Mejbri turned down France’s U18 and U19 call-ups to represent his parents’ nation, despite having previously played for France at the U16 and U17 levels. Regarding his choice to represent Tunisia, he said that it was the finest decision for his family and that he was proud of it. His choice is motivated by his passion for his parent’s homeland, which he shares.
He does not speak Arabic fluently, but he is not afraid since he feels that the higher the bar, the more one may develop, which can only help him acquire experience. He also said that his parents are pleased that he selected Tunisia over France, which is present to them. He is attempting to develop something for the future, not only for sports. Mejbri made his international debut for Tunisia in the 2021 FIFA Arab Cup, where he advanced to the final. He was named to head coach Jalel Kadri’s FIFA World Cup 2022 team of 26 players.
He made his World Cup debut At the age of 19.
Mejbri made his World Cup debut at the age of 19, making him the youngest member of Tunisia’s World Cup team. He made his debut in Tunisia against Denmark in their Group D opener. He came in in the last fifteen minutes to replace captain Youssef Msakni. The game ended in a scoreless tie. Mejbri will face Australia and France, both of which he has represented. Manchester United supporters were overjoyed with his debut and voiced their delight with nice tweets.
He hails from an athletic family.
Mejbri hails from an athletic family. His sister participated in sports, however not football, but handball. Lotfi Mejbri, his father, played football, and his older brother played in a Paris club.
How did he get interested in football?
He followed his elder brother, who was playing football. He was often pitted against bigger boys. He used to observe the activity and then perform the same at home with a little plastic balloon. That’s when he discovered his love for football. He was seven years old when he decided he wanted to join a football club while walking downstairs with his brother in the neighborhood.
His family never allowed him to be sidetracked by celebrities.
Mejbri claims that his family has always been there for him and has always reminded him that he has to work hard. He was in the limelight from a young age, though, reaching the finals of every competition and earning the best player award in practically all of them. He was just around 12 or 13 years old at the time. His family, on the other hand, was continually urging him to work hard. Despite the fact that people were talking about him, he continued to work.
He then learned that he enjoyed himself yet worked hard.
According to Mejbri, he was working hard, but he preferred to spend his time playing. He was having a good time and didn’t regard it as work. He was constantly having a good time. He enjoyed himself, and while doing so, he worked hard, as he just learned. He stated he liked passing exercises and didn’t consider them to work. He just now realized he really worked.
He had to wait a long time before signing for Manchester United.
From Monaco to Manchester, he waited a long time before signing, and he had a four-month break from football, which Mejbri described as the “evil side of football.” After joining AS Monaco in 2018, he grew disillusioned with the club within a year, with his parents alleging that the Ligue 1 club had broken the contract conditions. It was at that point that he realized football was more than simply a game played on a field.
During that time, he was at home exercising and training and doing all he could to avoid sinking. He had quit playing football and was now training. He thanks his elder brother for being there to teach him. He would have stopped otherwise. Everyone in the neighborhood was wondering whether he had given up football. So signing with Manchester United was a relief for him.
His net worth is now about $2 million, but with his rapid rise as one of the most promising talents, his net worth is certain to surge in the next few days.
