Opinion piece on Man Utd signing Aaron Wan Bissaka


The statistics again this up and the optimistic impression he made in certainly one of his earliest appearances, towards United, had marked him out as anyone to observe intently. I have to confess I puzzled if he is likely to be a possible weak hyperlink in that conflict, received 3-2 by United because of Nemanja Matic’s sensational late winner, given his lack of expertise.

I felt he was in all probability solely enjoying as a result of Tim Fosu-Mensah was ineligible, however I quickly accepted I’d been badly mistaken in any expectation that he could wrestle. The rookie right-back was distinctive and clearly didn’t deserve to complete on the shedding aspect. Therefore, I’m very happy Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has snapped Aaron up this summer season.

I’ve additionally famous how Wan-Bissaka’s coach at Below-16s and Below-23s degree was a sure Richard Shaw. Many United followers will bear in mind he was the opponent Eric Cantona lashed out towards at Selhurst Park in 1995, which led to his notorious pink card and kung-fu assault on Palace fan Matthew Simmons.
