Manchester United fans react to Diogo Dalot’s club debut

Diogo Dalot: Signed from FC Porto.

Manchester United Football Club signed the little-known right-back Diogo Dalot from FC Porto over the summer.

The 19-year-old missed pre-season as he was nursing an injury, but Dalot finally made his eagerly anticipated debut for the club; during an U23s match last night.

Despite only having a handful of competitive appearances under his belt, Dalot comes in with a big reputation. It was certainly intriguing to see him involved for the first time; and it was a mature performance from the young man.

He looks quick, showed a real willingness to bomb forward and help out in on the attack, while remaining solid defensively. In terms of stature, he’s a tall fellow meaning aerially, he should have no problems when going up in one-on-one battles against wingers.

Sure, this isn’t anywhere near to the level that we expect him to play at and it will take him some time to get fully up to speed.

It’s just nice for Jose Mourinho to potentially have another option in such a key area of the field. Don’t be surprised if he makes his fair share of Premier League starts this term.

Anyway, as you’d imagine, Twitter was awash with United fans full of praise for their new idol:
