He’s Simply Exceptional –Ten Hag Hails Dalot
Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag has described Diogo Dalot as an exceptional player after his impressive display against West Ham.
Recall that the Portugal international displayed an outstanding performance to help the Red Devils beat the Irons 1-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday.
England international, Marcus Rashford scored the only goal, heading home a fine cross from Christian Eriksen in the second half.
West Ham made several attempts to equalise the game late on but the likes of Dalot, David de Gea, Lisandro Martinez and Harry Maguire were outstanding in the back.
“I’m really happy with the development of Diogo,” Ten Hag told Sky Sports.
“His defensive positioning is growing from game to game, his time, also duels, are better from game to game and in possession I think he’s really good.
“He [Dalot] has the breath to go up and down [the flank] so the development is really good.”
