Aaron Wan-Bissaka is an excellent right-back nevertheless Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is simply not enjoying to his strengths
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is an effective footballer, so whenever you’ve discovered the headline, realized who I’m talking about, and clicked on this textual content anticipating me to absolutely tear apart the Manchester United defender, you’re most certainly going to be left disenchanted.
That being talked about, there’s nonetheless some criticism to come, and not all of it is aimed towards the United right-back. When the club signed Wan-Bissaka it was reported that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had a ‘shortlist’ of 804 options.
This quantity contains all of the right-backs United held scouting studies on, so not every player would have been thought of a goal so to converse, nevertheless, the decreased shortlist of fifty stays to be pretty prolonged.
I’ll rant about the intricacies of the United scouting community all day nevertheless the stage I want to make is that the club clearly thought very extraordinarily of Wan-Bissaka to even choose him from the 50-man shortlist, though his £50 million price ticket was most certainly sufficient of an indicator as to how badly Solskjaer wanted to sign him.
Following his arrival, most followers agreed Wan-Bissaka was an exquisite signing. Little did everyone knows the club could be in the marketplace for a right-back merely two years later.
Wan-Bissaka is an excellent one-on-one defender and he can shut down any winger in the world on his day, nevertheless by having fun with Mason Greenwood or Jesse Lingard in front of him – players preferring to decrease in and occupy the centre of the pitch – the former Crystal Palace man is tasked with providing creativity from the rightfully on his personal.
That’s evidently a difficulty as he is not a implausible crosser of the ball, and loads of followers have been calling for Diogo Dalot to be given further alternatives in the team – not because of he is a larger player than Wan-Bisakka (because of the undoubtedly shouldn’t be) nevertheless because of his capacity set larger matches the means United play.
Solskjaer wanted to sign Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier in the summertime as he was decided to add a extra attack-minded right-back to his squad.
For me, Solskjaer would clearly have been aware of how he wanted to play when he signed Wan-Bissaka, so why did he sign a £50 million player who can’t do the issue he wishes him to do? It’s merely one different blot on the United boss’ copybook and the criticism aimed towards Wan-Bissaka is unfair.
Wan-Bissaka stays to be a wonderful player however when he was struggling to assault as a right-back then why would Solskjaer suppose he might assault as a wing-back?
All I’m saying is perhaps it is not all the player’s fault.
