Evra names the Man Utd star who would have been perfect for Ferguson

Aaron Wan-Bissaka would have been a success for Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson, according to Patrice Evra.

The right-back was one of United’s major summer investments, and has started his Old Trafford career positively, being ever-present in the Premier League so far. He also earned his first senior England call-up, even though he had to withdraw from the squad due to injury.

And fellow full-back Evra, who is currently working as a trainee coach with United, believes Wan-Bissaka would have been a popular player for legendary manager Ferguson.

“He wants to go forward, he’s a strong defender,” Evra told Sky Sports. “Ferguson always said that if you don’t enjoy one-vs-ones, you shouldn’t play for Manchester United.

“I can see Wan-Bissaka is ready for that and enjoys the challenge.”

Another signing to have caught Evra’s eye is Daniel James, who has scored three goals in his first five appearances.


“What I love with James is his enthusiasm,” he said. “Yeah, he’s scored some great goals, he’s playing well, he’s fast, but what I want to see right now is the passion and the love for the badge.

“His celebrations shows that. He’s got a role model in Ryan Giggs. Maybe it’s a dream for him to play for Manchester United. That’s what I want when they come to this club.”
