Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian has revealed that there is a “magical atmosphere” surrounding the club.
The 25-year-old made the move from Torino to Man United this summer and has seemed to settle in extremely quickly, both on and off the pitch.
Darmian has started every game this season at right-back and has been hugely impressive. He has been part of a defence that has leaked just three goals in six matches and has arguably been United’s most exciting new signing thus far.
His good form has carried over for his country and while on international duty, the Italian opened up about his new home.
“When we say that England is actually another world, it is partly true. As you arrive you realise that everything is different, starting with the facilities. There is a magical atmosphere, always, even in training,” he said.
Darmian is clearly enjoying his early days at Old Trafford and United fans have been delighted with the promise he has shown.
He has slotted into a new-look back four seamlessly and his consistency is almost unparalleled. The right-back has been defensively resolute, while always giving United an extra option on the right wing.
With international duty now finished for Darmian, he will return to Manchester and turn his attention to the huge clash with Liverpool on Saturday. It will be the Italian’s first taste of a massive rivalry and United supporters will be hoping he can carry on his good form against their bitter rivals.
