Diogo Dalot reveals what it takes to thrive at Manchester United

Diogo Dalot believes that for a player to thrive at Manchester United, he has to fight for 90 minutes every single game and concedes that, that’s what he and his team-mates are trying to do.

Man United are on a four-match winning run after they beat Premier League leaders, Arsenal, 3-1 at Old Trafford last weekend.

Diogo Dalot, who fell behind Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the pecking order in previous seasons, has started all six games, including the Arsenal win on Sunday, under Ten Hag and has impressed in the last four games.

The defender has suggested that he is not getting carried away by his recent run of games because he believes to maintain his place in the team, he has to fight until the last minute in every game.

“This is what I’ve been fighting for to show my level,” Diogo Dalot told Andy Mitten via The National News. “This is the level that I want to keep for a long time. There’s still room for improvement of course and this is what I aim for every single day.

“To be at this club [Manchester United] you have to fight for it, you have to fight for 90 minutes every single game and this is what we are trying to do, then I think the quality will come up. But the basics, the standards of the club are like this.”

Diogo Dalot has been impressive in recent games for Manchester United and provided the assist to Bruno Fernandes’ lone goal against Southampton.
