Manchester United's recent signing Tyrell Malacia has revealed how he has been settling into life with his new club.

Malacia joined United from Feyenoord at the beginning of July and the Netherlands international jetted off with the rest of the squad on the pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia after just a couple of days’ worth of training at Carrington.

Tyrell made his first appearance for the Reds during our 4-0 win over Liverpool in Bangkok, impressing as a second-half substitute and he also caught the eye as a starter in the 3-1 victory against Crystal Palace at the MCG.

It was only a friendly, but Tyrell Malacia was proud to represent United. Watch his second-half actions here...

Our no.12 is already enjoying being part of the group, in a dressing room which boasts a good mix of youth and experience under new manager Erik ten Hag.

“I really feel like I’m at home already,” Tyrell added.

“The guys took me into the group and it feels good. I’m good with Anthony [Elanga], Tahith [Chong], of course. Hannibal, Ethan [Laird], Jimmy [Garner], mostly the younger guys.

“A couple of the older guys like Eric [Bailly], Alex [Telles], they speak a lot with me. [I’m] learning about the group and the team.”

Malacia has also benefited from the close network of support around him, as he told us that his father has been following the team while out on tour.

“My dad,” he replied, when asked who his biggest inspiration in life was. “Because he always worked hard, he was always there for me.

“Like even now, he came to Thailand, he came to Australia on his own. So, yeah [him].”
