Wan-Bissaka tipped to be ‘one of the greats’ at Manchester United

Wes Brown has tipped Aaron Wan-Bissaka to establish himself as ‘one of the greats’ at Manchester United.

The full-back has impressed since moving to Old Trafford in a £50m deal from Crystal Palace this summer, earning a first senior call-up to the England side for this months Euro 2020 qualifiers, though a back injury ruled him out from taking part.

Former Manchester United defender Brown, who won five league titles with the club, has praised Wan-Bissaka’s performances since making his big-money move and believes the 21-year-old can have a huge future in Manchester.

“He’s been fantastic, probably the one signing for United who has been most consistent,” Brown told Paddy Power.

“He’s started every game, he’s got great athleticism and he’s good in the tackle.

“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.

“People say he slides in too much, but I think he times his tackles perfectly. 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.”
