Manchester United’s newest signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka dispossessed Juan Mata in style in the opening minutes of his first training session for the club.
As per Metro Sport, the 21-year-old completed a £50 million switch from Crystal Palace to Old Trafford in June and joined up with his new teammates late after starring for England at the U-21 European Championships.
Big things are expected of the young full-back next season, after a superb 2018-19 campaign at Selhurst Park which saw him earn widespread praise for his performances at the back.
Wan-Bisska wasted no time in showing off his quality during United’s first training session on their summer tour of Australia, producing a superb recovery tackle on Mata, which ultimately led to a goal.
The English starlet certainly lived up to his ‘Spider’ nickname with the well-timed challenge, which you can watch below via United’s official Twitter account.
?? “’The Spider’ nickname is about the range of my legs when I’m lunging to make a tackle.”
