‘Very impressed by Darmian’, Manchester United supporters laud Italian international’s debut

Manchester United kicked off the new Premier League season with a 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon and there was a very promising debut from summer signing Matteo Darmian.

The Red Devils were not at their best during the game at Old Trafford and were somewhat fortunate to claim all three points as they were gifted the winner thanks to a mistake from Spurs defender Kyle Walker, who turned the ball into his own net in the 22nd minute after attempting to dispossess Wayne Rooney.

United manager Louis van Gaal handed debuts to all five of his recruits over the summer as Memphis Depay, Morgan Schneiderlin, Sergio Romero were all named in the starting XI while Bastian Schweinsteiger came off the bench in the second half to a standing ovation, but it was the performance of Italian defender Darmian that pleased a number of the club’s supporters on Twitter.
