Cool, calm and collected. They can be three words to describe Raphael Varane's strong debut for Manchester United away at Wolves, but it is his actions before the beginning of the second half which has showed his further instant impact.
In the club's latest 'Access All Areas' 17 minute video showing close pitch side views and situations we may not have picked up during the television coverage, the World Cup winning defender can be seen giving advise to his new teammate Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who is deep in thought taking in what looks like a detailed take on where the team can advance in the match.
28-year-old Varane who won the lot at Real Madrid including four Champions League titles has already immersed himself in the culture of the club. He looks and feels like a Sir Alex Ferguson signing, the way he was presented on the pitch against Leeds United on the opening day and now this, clearly helping those around him with his vast experience and know how.
Of course, its hard to make out exactly what Varane is sharing with Wan-Bissaka but we can see the methodology.
Using his arms and fingers to signal, it looks as though he is telling Wan-Bisakka to focus on a trigger for him to make a forward movement to aid the teams attack. He points to both of his temples as if to say, 'use your mind, wait for the right opportunity.' I could be completely wrong here, but this is the Sunday League manager in me speaking.
One thing is for sure though, United now have experience and proper leaders right through the spine of the team. Not only leaders but winners as well. 36-year-old Ronaldo comes back to Carrington after breaking another record, this time as the International all time scorer whilst his Portuguese teammate Bruno Fernandes has been a breathe of fresh air for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team since arriving from Sporting Lisbon, often talking about winning titles and getting the best out of his teammates.
Its early days, but this current United team are really started to resemble the one we seen dominate the Premier League for the best part of two decades.
