Solskjaer optimistic regarding right-back despite tough loan spell at Milan

By Isak Möller -

Towards the end of the summer transfer window, Milan brought in Diogo Dalot on a one-year loan from Man Utd. They had been working hard to include a buy-out option, but eventually settled for a dry loan to secure the deal. 

The Portuguese youngster has made a good amount of appearances for the Rossoneri this season, with 17 of them between Serie A, Coppa Italia and Europa League. However, he has mostly played on the left-hand side of the defence.

And as we know, that isn’t his best position and this has been reflected in his performances, which have been subpar as of late. Last night, Dalot was given 4.5/10 in our player ratings, the lowest handed out to any player.

Despite his struggles as of late, Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskajer seemed pleased with the solution to send the right-back to Milan. After all, he has been able to get more playing time, but his future remains very uncertain nevertheless.

“Diogo we know. He went there to get some experience at a big club and he’s learned a lot. He’s played a lot more games this season, kept fit and, hopefully, we can give him some bother,” he said as cited by Football Italia after drawing Milan earlier today.
