Earlier in the summer, Louis van Gaal claimed that reformed right back Antonio Valencia will be his first choice in the position this season but so far, new signing from Torino, Matteo Darmian has been the go-to guy at full back.
A current starter for Italy in the position at present, Darmian was a standout player against England during their group stage battle at last summer’s World Cup.
Steady, if not spectacular in the opening few game weeks of the season so far, Darmian is a pacey customer who can get up and down the right flank while not forgetting his defensive duties and also able to play as an emergency centre half, he will ultimately prove a useful addition to van Gaal’s squad you feel.Like what the TT have on offer?
