Sofyan Amrabat gives incredible interview after first Man Utd start, it's the definition of 'aura'

United fans will love this.

Sofyan Amrabat's first post-match interview as a Manchester United player shows he is exactly what supporters have been waiting for.

The Red Devils ran out 3-0 winners against Crystal Palace during their Carabao Cup clash on Tuesday evening in what will undoubtedly be seen as their best performance of the season so far.

Goals from Alejandro Garnacho, Casemiro and Anthony Martial was enough to book their place in the next round.

But among the heart of the action was new loan signing Sofyan Amrabat, who was handed his full debut after a brief cameo appearance against Burnley on the weekend.

The 27-year-old played a hybrid left-back role, drifting into midfield alongside Casemiro and Hannibal Mejbri to help nullify any threat from the Eagles.

Meanwhile, his impressive statistics have gone viral on social media which demonstrate just how important the midfielder could be moving forward.

Amrabat impressed off the pitch, too, and would have won over plenty of fans in his post-match interview, when he joked he would play as a goalkeeper if Erik ten Hag asked.

“I told the manager I will play where [he] needs me and where the team needs me, even if it is a goalkeeper!” the Morocco international told Sky Sports at full-time.

“I play where I can help the team, today it was left-back. I had a bit of a free role, I think you saw I played a bit in midfield, so it was nice, it was good.”

Sofyan called it an 'amazing' feeling to play at Old Trafford, admitting he had been preparing for this moment since he was a child.

“I think it was a perfect night,” he added.

“We played very well and, most importantly, we won 3-0. I played one hour, so I think it was perfect.”

“Since I was a child I worked for this [moment],” he added. I worked very hard for my whole career and life [for this], so it was amazing to play here.

“Today is a Tuesday and the stadium was full, it is fantastic.”
