Latest Man Utd news from Solskjaer press conference


There was another really impressive performance for Aaron Wan-Bissaka going forward on Wednesday. A lot of people already see him as the best defensive right-back in the Premier League, has he already exceeded your expectations? Did you ever think he was going to be this good?
“We saw an exceptional defender when I watched him last season. He had a couple of games especially against [Leroy] Sane, against Manchester City, and you think: ‘wow, he’s so hard to go past’. Then when we managed to sign him you get to know him and he’s a shy boy, but still he’s providing more and more assists and creating more chances and crosses. It’s in him, because he’s been a winger. The best full-backs, at the moment, sometimes they have been wingers. We rely on the full-backs to go forward in the way we want to play and I’m very pleased with his progress.”

I suppose we should mention Liverpool Ole, and with it being the FA Cup, your last-minute winner against them in ’99. Was that your best moment in the competition and how important is this competition, especially this season, to you and your players?
“The FA Cup is fantastic. When I was a young boy back home it was always the last game and the climax of the season – the game you look forward to. It was always broadcast live on telly in Norway and for me, yeah, that goal against them was probably the best moment in the FA Cup for me, apart from, of course, when you walk up the Old Wembley steps in ’99, the final. I played a part in the first goal, winning the ball, so that was a proud moment for me. My dad was in the stands. I’ve lifted it twice as a player so hopefully I can get a chance to walk out at Wembley again. It’s a fantastic tournament, it’s always been the big one. I’m not sure if the youngsters today really understand how much it means, but I think our players, they certainly realise.”
