Premier League’s best players ‘afraid’ of Manchester United star
Wes Brown knows a thing or two about what it’s like to feel the pressure of playing for the Red Devils.
The 39-year-old was a squad player for United from 2002 to 2011 after coming through the youth ranks but Wan-Bissaka is destined to be a star, with the former already heaping praise on the ex-Crystal Palace man.
Wan-Bissaka made the heavily publicised move from Palace to United during the summer for the hefty fee of £50m.
Whilst the pressure is on and Wan-Bissaka has had to endure team struggles with United thus far, Brown insists the right-back already has the Premier League running scared.
“He’s started every game, he’s got great athleticism and he’s good in the tackle,” Brown told Paddy Power.
“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.
“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.”
