Manchester United star speaks out after reports claim he will leave the club


Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian is ready to play on both wings in order to secure a regular place at the club this season.

Recent reports have claimed that the Italy international is expected to leave Old Trafford during the summer transfer window.

Napoli have been heavily linked with a move to sign the 26-year-old but he was full of praise for new manager Jose Mourinho after last week's win against Galatasaray.

"The game was important to play because I'd worked for just one week," Darmian told the club's official website.

"I came back only last week so I have to improve my condition but it was okay out there.

"I think it's good to have such competition within the squad because there are a lot of good players for every position in a big team. You just have to be ready for when the manager gives you a chance.

"I think he's a great manager, he's very hungry and his victories and successes speak volumes for him.

"We want to improve this week to be ready for the first game of the season.

"I'm a right-back but I can also play left-back.

"If the manager needs me on the left, I'll play on the left but, otherwise, I play on the right."
