Aaron Wan-Bissaka has explained how he is working with coaches at Manchester United to help improve his attacking output.
The right-back has improved United’s defence since moving to Old Trafford from Crystal Palace in 2019 but he contributes little going forward.
He explained that he is committed to improving in that area of his game.
“I do work on it (attacking). The staff are helping me do that all the time in training,” Wan-Bissaka told United’s matchday programme. “They like me to go up and link with the attack, when I can.”
One player whose attacking qualities aren’t in question is Bruno Fernandes, and Wan-Bissaka regards the Portugal international highly.
“He helps everyone – on and off the pitch,” Wan-Bissaka said. “He tells me before the game what he thinks I should do and which positions he thinks I should get into when he gets the ball, and where I should be. He has done it with the other players, and I can see that, along with the impact that he has made. When I scored my goal, he said he couldn’t believe I could shoot! That goal there was to show him!”
On United’s ambitions for 2021, Wan-Bissaka said: “Just for the team to finish as high as we possibly can in the table and, hopefully, bring a few trophies back to the club. The match against Watford coming up is another cup game and it’s certainly a competition we want to go far in. I think we’ve just had a turnaround since the slow start to the season. You can see the position we are in now, how things have changed. The results have been coming good and I hope it can continue.”
