Jamie Carragher: What I really think of Aaron Wan-Bissaka at Man United
Jamie Carragher outlines where Aaron Wan-Bissaka will need to improve for Man United
Jamie Carragher believes that Aaron Wan-Bissaka will need to work on his attacking game if he is to be a big hit at Manchester United.
The 21-year-old has been settling into life at Old Trafford after having joined the Red Devils from Crystal Palace in the summer transfer window in a big-money deal.
Wan-Bissaka has started both of Manchester United’s Premier League games this season and he was unable to prevent the Red Devils from slumping to a disappointing 1-1 draw at Wolves on Monday night.
The right-back will be hoping to make the position his own in the coming weeks and months as he aims to help Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men challenge for a top four finish in the Premier League.
Former Liverpool FC defender Carragher has been impressed by Wan-Bissaka’s displays at the back but feels that he will need to work on his game going forwards.
Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Carragher said: “He’s difficult to get past. That [defending] is what you expect him to be good at.
“Let’s not forget, he’s been used to being at Crystal Palace, used to being in his own half of the pitch more often than not.
“What will define his Manchester United career, probably more than the defensive side, will be what he’s like in the attacking half of the pitch, where he probably hasn’t got as much experience.”
Wan-Bissaka will be hoping to start when Manchester United aim to try and return to winning ways in a home clash against his former club Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
Manchester United are currently fourth in the Premier League table.
