- The Brazilian is impressed by Wan-Bissaka’s improvement in getting more goals for United this season.
- But he believes United need to sign another right-back to motivate the right-back into performing at his highest levels consistently.
“Telles has made him improve, someone to say ‘if you’re not playing well, if you’re not concentrating, working hard, you’re going to lose your place’.
“This definitely makes you play better, so for Wan-Bissaka if they bring in a good right-back, you’re going to help him to improve. 100 per cent, this is what makes players compete for their place, and to improve. If you play every game, you have no competition and you can start to get in a comfort zone, it’s not good for you.”
But Fabio also praised Wan-Bisska’s improvements this season, saying: “I think he’s already improved, to be honest.
“I watch a lot of Man United, I follow them, and before he arrived I thought as an offensive full-back for United, he’s not going to do it. Everyone knew he was a great defender, his positioning is good, but at the beginning, I thought: ‘I don’t know’.
“But now, really, he has improved a lot. He can still improve more, he is young, but now he’s a much better offensive player than when he arrived. So if he keeps improving, he will be a fantastic player, I really like him.”
