Matteo Darmian has admitted he can’t wait to experience a big game atmosphere with Manchester United.
Darmian has been superb since his summer arrival from Torino having slotted into life at Man United with a minimum of fuss.
United have finally sorted out a position that had given them problems in recent years and some supporters are proclaiming Darmian to be the best right-back Old Trafford has seen since Gary Neville.
The Italian revealed he is enjoying himself at United and that he can’t wait to play in the big games.
“Every player wants to play all the games but, above all, the big ones like Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal,” he said.
“I am sure these are the matches the fans wait for more anxiously but we’ve simply got to concentrate game by game on all our opponents, not just the top sides, and play our best.”
Darmian has arguably been United’s most impressive player so far this term.
The right-back is consistently brilliant at both ends of the pitch and his contribution to the side’s impressive defensive record this season cannot be understated. Louis van Gaal had numerous problems at the back last term but Darmian has played a big part in tightening things up.
