Aaron Wan-Bissaka's training video shows how he has forced his way back into Man United's team

Aaron Wan-Bissaka's training video shows how he has forced his way back into Man United's team

Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been taking part in extra training and it's paid dividends.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka's one-to-one training video sheds light on how he was able to get back into the Manchester United first-team when his future looked bleak.

The right-back, signed from Crystal Palace in a £50 million deal back in 2019, lost his place to Diogo Dalot at United and it looked as though his time at Old Trafford was done and dusted after he managed just four minutes of action.

That came in a 2-1 win over Liverpool back in August, with Wan Bissaka struggling with illness and injuries.

However, since the return of club football, following on from the World Cup in Qatar, Wan-Bissaka has been back in the fold after an injury to Dalot.

He has kept a clean sheet in all four of his appearances and also registered an assist in the 2-0 Carabao Cup win over Burnley on 23 December.

Erik ten Hag has been impressed by his improvement and it would appear as though extra training has been the secret to Wan-Bissaka's success of late.

Players Plus posted a one minute video of the 25-year-old taking part in a series of drills on a pitch in Cheshire, with the caption, "The top players are out here doing the extras every day to improve".

The vid also contains the text, "Thy said this man's Man United career was over, but he stayed patient and did the extras. Now back in the side under Ten Hag and balling."

Wan-Bissaka's defensive abilities, specifically his tackling and nullifying of wingers, have always been a strong part of his game.

But with the role of a modern full-back changing and placing a bigger focus on attacking qualities, Wan Bissaka has been working on his first touch, getting the ball out of his feet, dribbling and crossing.

The England Under 21 international looks extremely sharp, earning praise from the coaches in the clip and fans on TikTok.

One said: "He's been improving and showing it, whilst being out the team for months, however hasn't said anything on media."

A second added: "I like it when people take responsibilities of their own career and work hard to perfect their craft."

A third commented: "Good to see players that actually look finished and out of form are actually coming back."

Dalot got the nod against Everton in the FA Cup win on Friday but Ten Hag likes having the two players compete for the starting berth.

"I like these problems," Ten Hag told MUTV, when asked about his potential selection headache.

"He is doing really well, Aaron, in the last few games. Defending really consistently.

He is also reliable in offence. He has a part in it, he contributes well.

“It's a nice fight in the squad but also, we have a lot of games to cover, so we need them all."
