Wes Brown has tipped Aaron Wan-Bissaka to become one of the ‘great’ right-backs after an impressive start to his Manchester United career.
Wan-Bissaka completed a £50million move from Crystal Palace to United at the end of June, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer blown away by the 21-year-old’s performances in the Premier League last season.
The youngster has played every minute for United this term and has impressed in a new-look back four which also boasts £80million arrival Harry Maguire.
Daniel James – who joined from Swansea – has stole the headlines with three goals in his opening four games, but Brown believes Wan-Bissaka has been the ‘most consistent’ of United’s summer signings.
‘He’s been fantastic, probably the one signing for United who has been most consistent,’ the former United defender told Paddy Power. ‘He’s started every game, he’s got great athleticism and he’s good in the tackle.
‘He’s come from Crystal Palace and people wondered if he’d be good enough for Manchester United and already from the first game it looks like he’s stepping up. He’s enjoying it and it’s where he wants to be.
‘If he can carry on like that he’s going to be one of the greats in that position. He’s only young, he’s level-headed and everything he’s done, tackling, tracking back has been brilliant.
‘I’ve even seen some of the better players not dare to have a go at him, they’re turning back and passing it. That’s the sort of player he is, no one wants to take him on because he’s going to go with everything.
‘People say he slides in too much, but I think he times his tackles perfectly. When you have a player like that and people realise they can’t take him on, it’s an advantage to the team because they start playing back.’ He added.
