Matteo Darmian is thrilled with his player of the month award at Manchester United

Matteo Darmian took to social media to pay tribute to Manchester United’s fans after the defender was voted the club’s player of the month for August.

The Italian, who joined the Red Devils from Torino earlier this summer, has been a regular fixture in Louis van Gaal’s first team so far this season.

Darmian won the award with 42 per cent of the vote after impressing as he made his first few appearances in the English Premier League.

He shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Thank you so much! I will always try to do my best. #mufc @manchesterunited”

The 25-year-old defender has started all four of United’s top-flight games and was named man of the match for Italy during their 1-0 win over Malta last week.

Darmian will be hoping to feature when United return to Premier League action against Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils head into the clash on the back of their surprise 2-1 loss to Swansea City before the international break.

Louis van Gaal’s men are currently fifth in the Premier League table after taking seven points from their opening four games.
