Dalot offered hope by United boss

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists the arrival of Aaron Wan-Bissaka doesn't end Diogo Dalot's hopes of playing for Manchester United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists the arrival of Aaron Wan-Bissaka doesn’t end Diogo Dalot’s hopes of playing for Manchester United.

United shelled out £50million to sign right-back Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace earlier in the summer and he is likely to claim the starting berth this season.

Dalot, who was signed by Jose Mourinho, could be excused for fearing he may struggle to get many minutes but Solskjaer’s latest comments will certainly brighten his day.

The Norwegian feels Dalot can provide competition for Wan-Bissaka and has even hinted he could play in a more advanced role.

‘We’re trying to build a squad that can have a long life,’ said Solskjaer.

‘And with Diogo and Aaron we have got two right-backs that will be very good players.

‘Diogo can play right wing and has probably gone from right-back to being able to play right wing.

And Aaron has been right wing that can play right-back ‘They can give us good options on the right and Ashley can play both sides, he’s played in the World Cup last summer for England at left-back and he can push Luke and Aaron and Diogo, no bother.’
