Manchester United looked like they have recovered from the complicated start to the season where they lost their first two games against Brighton and Brentford. The team has shown a completely new face in the victories over Liverpool and Southampton, and according to Diogo Dalot, this is caused after they started to do the basics in training.

“It’s always easier to train when you are winning games and things are going well. After the defeat against Brentford, I think we had to bring the basics every single day, the standards, the right standards at this club, so I think we did it well. Obviously, it doesn’t mean anything if we don’t continue doing it”, he told the club’s media after today’s training.

The Portuguese full-back has started in all the first four games of the season, so he knows exactly what was happening and needed to change because he has played a crucial role in the last two matches. The team has looked like a unit and has also shown more character and fighting spirit on the field.

At 23 years of age, Diogo Dalot is currently living his best moment in a Manchester United jersey. He arrived from FC Porto in 2018 when he was one of the promising young full-backs in Portuguese football. However, he struggled to be a regular in the starting XI, and he even was loaned out to AC Milan two seasons ago. Now he is a regular with both United and his national team ahead of the FIFA World Cup.

Not good enough?

It has been reported in recent days that Erik ten Hag is asking the club to sign Sergiño Dest from FC Barcelona so Diogo Dalot could face competition in the right-back position. The Dutch manager is also waiting for Aaron Wan-Bissaka to be sold because he doesn’t really seem too impressed with him for after watching him play in pre-season.
