Solskjaer considers next steps for Diogo Dalot
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is happy with Diogo Dalot's progress at AC Milan, and is looking forward to welcoming the defender back to Old Trafford at some point in the future.
“The plan was always for Diogo this season, or the main thing for Diogo, was to be fit,” said Solskjaer. “He never managed to be fit for a long spell when he was here [and was] unfortunate with injuries.
“Now he's kept fit all season; he's been available for them. He's playing at a big club, big expectations, [with the] great history of the club, so it's been a good year for him. So, of course, I've been very pleased with his development this season, and he's our player and we're looking forward to having him back.”
Before the first leg, Ole also spoke kindly of the right-back, noting his recent goal for Milan against Hellas Verona.
“Diogo has done really well, he scored a very good goal this weekend and he’s enjoying his time over there,” he said.
“We’re very happy with Diogo – that he went there to get the experience of playing for such a massive, iconic club and [is] getting the standards required every single week.”
