Man United fans were not happy with Diogo Dalot, who looked pretty bad vs Villareal last night…
On a night where Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils were once again less than convincing, it’s becoming a trend that we’re finding it easier to pick out the poor performances rather than the bad ones.
Let’s have it right. that first half, in particular, was borderline shocking. Aside from David de Gea and Bruno Fernandes the players just didn’t show any fight whatsoever.
However, there was one man who struggled; Diogo Dalot.
The Portugal international was brought into the team in place of the suspended Aaron Wan-Bissaka. This was supposed to be his chance to prove his worth and show everyone that he can start games for this club.
Sadly, that just didn’t happen for Dalot on the night. Time and time again he was getting beaten down his side. Be it for pace, or flat out getting outfought, the former FC Porto man just wasn’t anywhere good enough.
Perhaps this is why Solskjaer has been so hesitant when it comes to giving Dalot a chance. After all, the boss sees these players every single day in training and if today is anything to go by, it’s becoming clearer why he’s often rooted to the bench.
Dalot has to get better quickly if he wants to keep his place here in Manchester. Who knows, Solskjaer’s mind may already be made up given the summer links to Kieran Trippier. It’ll be interesting to see exactly how this one plays out.
As you’d imagine, the United fans all over social media were not happy with the star, who struggled badly vs Villareal. I would expect he’ll be back on the bench this weekend…
