Manchester United fans ambush Instagram post to make same Diogo Dalot point
Manchester United supporters have ambushed a social media post from the Premier League giants to heap praise on Portuguese right-back Diogo Dalot.
Signed by former manager Jose Mourinho from Porto for around £20million, the defender has struggled to hold down a regular place in the United line-up.
However, after coming into the team against Arsenal, the 22-year-old was retained against Crystal Palace and produced another impressive display.
That came as Aaron Wan-Bissaka returned from a minor injury to take place on the United bench.
Dalot spent last season on loan at rejuvenated Italian giants AC Milan and was allowed to twice face United in the Europa League, though twice failed to win.
Back at Old Trafford this campaign, is the five-cap Portugal star ready to leapfrog Wan-Bissaka? Judging by reaction from supporters to his part in Fred’s stunning winner against Palace, there is a genuine case.
Here are a selection of comments posted by United fans on popular social media platform Instagram;
@calebt2866 said: “Can we give credit to Dalot?”
@jsvsqzl posted: “Dalot was pretty good at Milan. He just needed a chance to start. AWB is good defensively – they could be rotated here and there, but Dalot should start more often.”
@gee.blaze added: “Let’s not lie. Dalot is so good, he needs more game-time.”
@edison_rd1 said: “Dalot has proved he is better than AWB and has to keep his place.”
@farhanfathullah posted: “Dalot is on fire.”
@mutyabakrista.25 added: “If he continues performing consistently like that, he will be a beast.”
