Matteo Darmian has underlined his desire to help Manchester United win trophies following his summer transfer to Old Trafford.

The Italy defender has been a regular fixture in Louis van Gaal’s first team since signing for the Red Devils from Italian side Torino over the summer.

United are currently fourth in the Premier League table and two points behind leaders Manchester City after 12 games of the new season.

And Darmian says that he will do all he can to help the Red Devils lift a trophy in his first season at the club.

Darmian told the Red Devils’ website: “United are a club that is used to winning lots of trophies and my ambition is to win as many games as possible in order to help us lift this silverware as we go forward.”

The defender also revealed that it has been relatively straightforward for him to put manager Van Gaal’s ideas into practice on the pitch.

The 25-year-old defender continued: “I just think I do manage to understand what the coach wants and put it into practice during the training sessions and on a matchday.”

Darmian will be hoping to feature when United return to Premier League action after the international break with a trip to Watford on Saturday 21 November.
