This Is Where Diogo Dalot Is Best – Former Manchester United Defender
Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown believes Diogo Dalot’s attacking ability makes him a better wing-back than a traditional full-back.
His introduction into the game helped Manchester United against Paris Saint-Germain last month and he again started in a left wing-back role against Barcelona on Wednesday night.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has used him in a more attacking role and he has also even played to the right of midfield because of his ability.
Brown feels that his attacking qualities make him a better wing-back and feels Solskjaer is more comfortable with him playing further up the pitch than defending as a traditional full-back.
The former Red Devil said on MUTV when asked about Dalot’s best position: “He probably is a wing-back.
“His attacking ability is very good, he doesn’t seem under pressure and he gets good balls into the box.
“I haven’t seen anyone really get at him yet defensively, but because he has been so good attacking wise, Ole prefers him a little higher.”
