Erik ten Hag explains why Aaron Wan-Bissaka is improving for Manchester United

Erik ten Hag says Aaron Wan-Bissaka is “picking up on the coaching” amid his resurgence at Manchester United. Having played only four minutes all season prior to the World Cup, Wan-Bissaka has started all five of United’s Premier League matches since the restart.

The 25-year-old drew widespread praise for his sliding tackle on Wilfried Zaha that effectively prevented Crystal Palace from a late win over United at Selhurst Park on Wednesday night.

Zaha, a former teammate of Wan-Bissaka‘s, admitted “he’s the only one who can do that scoop tackle, it was a great tackle”. Ten Hag thought Wan-Bissaka was one of United’s best performers in their 1-1 draw

Yeah, he’s picking up the coaching and he’s making good progress from the start of the season until now,” Ten Hag said.

“He was in a bad, I would say, situation because he was not fit. He had a lot of injuries, he had a couple of illnesses in the first half until November and things changed after the break, during the break, I would say.

He worked well in the pre-season before the second half of the season. He worked well in the training camp, he had then some good performances in the games, and I think he’s making good progress.

“Also, tonight I think he was one of our best players.”
