Plenty of Manchester United fans gushed over Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s latest comments about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Wan-Bissaka has revealed he heavily admires the Norwegian, as the club legend is eager to help the first team improve and develop as individuals, and he is looking forward to seeing what the future brings at Old Trafford.
Writing in his weekly column via United’s official website, the defender revealed “since day one at United, I’ve seen that Ole’s a manager who knows what he wants. You can see his intentions for the team. He wants every single player to improve and he’s given us all a steer on what we need to improve. That’s what you need, I think; a manager who will push you.”
“Personally, he’s encouraged me to go forward with confidence and express myself, and prior to the recent lockdown I think my attacking game was definitely improving. As I said, there’s a lot more to come from me, from us and I can’t wait to get back to it.”
After arriving at the Theatre of Dreams from Crystal Palace for £49.5m last summer, the 22-year-old has made 29 appearances in the Premier League for Solskjaer’s side this season, providing 2 assists, making a staggering 3.8 tackles per game, averaging at least 2 interceptions, and completing 1.9 clearances on average in the English top flight (WhoScored).
Given his performances at the back so far, some supporters may be wary of potential suitors circling the Englishman, but, they should be reassured by the fact his contract runs until 2024, and the board also have the option to extend his agreement by another year. The right-back’s market value is estimated at £28.8m via Transfermarkt.
Wan-Bissaka’s diary entry prompted lots of reactions from the Red Devils fan base, with one supporter describing him as a “bargain,” and another adding a Ballon d’Or is “incoming.”

Already the best defensive full back in the league, and has already improved going forward since the start of the season, making the transfer fee look like a bargain!!!
