Man Utd legend Denis Irwin praises full-backs Dalot, Malacia, Shaw and Wan-Bissaka


“I think that’s one of the big pluses of the manager coming in: he’s improved a lot of players this season in terms of where they’ve been in the last couple of years,” Irwin explained.

“Dalot has been one of the best players this season. [He] never really got a run in [under] the last few managers; he’s been in and been out. He’s been another big plus for us this season.

“And Luke, who has recently played at centre-half, is another player that’s really pushed on. Now that’s [due to] Malacia pushing him on and having good competition there, but obviously himself playing well after a really good World Cup.

“Your full-backs are big players in today’s game because it’s so congested in midfield and you’ve got holding players now, which encourages full-backs to go forward. In those two [Dalot and Shaw], we’ve certainly got that.”
