Former defender tips Wan-Bissaka to be ‘one of the greats’ at Man Utd

Aaron Wan-Bissaka could become a Manchester United great in the full-back position, according to Wes Brown.

The 21-year-old has settled into life brilliantly at Old Trafford since his move from Crystal Palace, and has already established himself as starting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s right-back.

There were some raised eyebrows after a £50m deal was confirmed for the youngster, but he is already proving why United were right to splash the cash this summer.

The Reds finally have right-back who is more than adequate defensively, after years of playing converted wingers Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia in the position.

Wan-Bissaka is already becoming a fan favourite for United fans, and is known for his trademark ‘spider’ tackles where he somehow reaches to intercept the ball.

Brown, who won five Premier League titles during his career at Old Trafford, rates the youngster very highly.

Speaking to PaddyPower, the former Red said: “He’s been fantastic, probably the one signing for United who has been most consistent.

“He’s started every game, he’s got great athleticism and he’s good in the tackle.

“He’s come from Crystal Palace and people wondered if he’d be good enough for Manchester United and already from the first game it looks like he’s stepping up. He’s enjoying it and it’s where he wants to be.

“If he can carry on like that he’s going to be one of the greats in that position.”

Wan-Bissaka was forced to pull out of Gareth Southgate’s England squad after his first call-up to the senior side this week, but is expected to be back fit to face Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday.
