Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s first match for Manchester United at Old Trafford went as well as he could have hoped, according to the 21-year-old.
And he got off to a great start in the club’s opener, helping United to a smashing 4-0 win over Chelsea to get his career at the club off to the best possible start.
“It was a great result to beat Chelsea and I couldn’t have been much happier with how it went,” Wan-Bissaka told The Guardian. “I had been waiting for my first game at Old Trafford as a United player and it felt great to get it done and for it to go so well.”
“I wasn’t nervous, that’s not me, but I think a lot of eyes were on the new signings to see how we got on,” he said. “I just tend to block out that stuff and focus on my own game but at the same time I was really excited about it. I got a lot of playing time in pre-season matches, which I needed because it helped me get to know the team.
“The games all went well and the players were all great with me from the first day onwards. They are all good lads and they helped me a lot when it came to settling in, but even so your first league game at Old Trafford is always going to be a landmark. Thankfully I was happy with my performance.”
With the season opener now out of the way, United will be looking to keep their strong start going on Monday, when they face their first away test of the campaign against Wolves.
But Wan-Bissaka thinks his side have everything they need to carry on winning, with the confidence of having beaten Chelsea providing an early season boost.
