Matteo Darmian has been voted as the player of the month by the fans following his solid performances at right back in August. Darmian has expressed his gratitude for voting for him.

It’s important to know this is from the fans. I want to thank them. I am happy. I also want to thank my team-mates and everyone at the club for making me feel welcome. I have been working hard for the team.

Louis van Gaal has echoed the senitment of the fans, claiming that Darmian has done everything he’s asked of him so far.

A full-back firstly has to defend and then secondly he has to build up. Thirdly, he has to attack and give an option to his fellow players in front of him. He has fulfilled my expectations of him so far.
