Several Manchester United fans were pleased with Tyrell Malacia after the left-back had his first training session with his new team-mates.
Man United completed the signing of Malacia from Feyenoord this week and the Dutchman put pen to paper on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old, who is expected to be a back-up to Luke Shaw, trained with the Manchester United squad on Thursday ahead of United’s trip to Bangkok on Friday.
Man United’s official Twitter handle tweeted a video from today’s training session and fans were pleased with how Malacia reacted to Erik ten Hag’s drills.

Tyrell Malacia will wear Manchester United‘s No.12 jersey number for next season, it has been officially confirmed by The Red Devils.
