Seemingly out of place at Old Trafford, Wan-Bissaka revived when he was given the opportunity by coach Erik ten Hag. In the 2-0 win over Burnley in the round of 16 of the Carabao Cup on December 22, the English defender escaped to the bottom of the border and made a cross as set for Christian Eriksen to score. He was scored 8 points by 90min, only inferior to Marcus Rashford.
Until the 3-0 win against Nottingham Forest on the morning of December 28 (Hanoi time), the £50 million contract continued to make an impression. The former Crystal Palace player returns to his solid image in defense and also actively participates in attack. He received many compliments after 2 matches.
Commentator Micky Gray commented on talkSPORT: “Wan-Bissaka did great. He really did. Wan-Bissaka was absent for a long time and is now back strong. Tonight’s performance. Wan-Bissaka did not make any mistakes in both attack and defence.
Coach Erik ten Hag also highly appreciated the student: “He has a future in MU. Wan-Bissaka spent some great years at MU but unfortunately suffered injuries and frequent health problems from the beginning of the season. I am satisfied with what he has shown from the way he moves and adheres to the tactics.”
Wan-Bissaka joined MU in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first summer transfer window at Old Trafford and immediately took the official position. But over the past year, this player has declined in form and was knocked out of the main squad by Diogo Dalot.
This summer, MU is ready to negotiate the sale of Wan-Bissaka. Goal headlined “Dalot won the fight with Wan-Bissaka”. The defender is also often mocked when the Norwegian coach and his scouting team once sifted through a list of up to 804 defenders just to choose him.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano revealed that coach Ten Hag intends to add a right-back as a backup for Dalot. However, with the sudden revival of Wan-Bissaka, MU may shift its priority to another position.
