Matteo Darmian looked to be thrilled as the Manchester United defender was named the club’s player of the month for August.

The defender, who joined the Red Devils from Torino this summer, was voted as the club’s top performer during the first few weeks of the season by the club’s fans.

The right-back won the prize with 42 per cent of the vote after impressing as he made his first few appearances in the English Premier League.

And the Italy international looked to be in good spirits as he posed for a picture with the award on Thursday afternoon.

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.
