Alex Telles Is Already A Manchester United Hero After Incredible Crosses On His Debut Vs PSG
Alex Telles made his Manchester United debut in Tuesday evening's 2-1 win over Paris-Saint Germain and fans already adore his wicked crossing ability.
The Brazilian joined United from Porto on transfer deadline day and started as a left wing-back in their opening Champions League group stage game.
It means he was allowed to bomb forward and showcase what he can offer in attack.
Telles was also on corner duty and managed to trouble PSG's defence every time he fired a ball into the box, as shown in ndcomps' video.
Fans have reacted to the 27-year-old's performance and they're impressed with his first 67 minutes as a United player.
I knew Telles could cross but bloody hell, he can cross a ball well. Maguire is going to eating these corners up!- Craig (@CraigCharles23) October 20, 2020

Telles' cross was wicked - the trajectory on that makes it so that FBs have to get really close to him to block it.- UtdArena (@utdarena) October 20, 2020
Telles was substituted in the second half for Paul Pogba and it was a change many were left puzzled by, given his impressive showing.
But Pogba's introduction helped swing momentum in United's favour and Marcus Rashford netted the winner four minutes from time.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Manchester Evening News the change was made as his side were growing in confidence.
"We played well today, we showed confidence. As you said, at 1-1 in the middle of the second-half we started to get more confidence, played, Paul Pogba came on and did really well for us and we created chances.
"I thought we created chances. Of course, we lost Eric [Bailly], we lost Harry [Maguire], Mason [Greenwood] isn't ready yet. We made a little change. We've got players that can play split strikers and we thought they could do some damage.
"Axel [Tuanzebe], in his first game in 10 months, and Alex's debut, so we don't really want to play a back four, so we played a back three, or back five, call it whatever you like, and I thought it worked well."
