Solskjaer is 'exposing' Wan-Bissaka and this is poor management after Man United latest - pundit

Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s weakness on the ball is being “exposed” by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s back-five system at Man United, according to Danny Mills.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Man City and England full-back slammed Solskjaer’s bad management of Wan-Bissaka.

The 23-year-old Premier League ever-present is known for resolute defending but has been asked to play in a more advanced role in recent weeks.

Solskjaer reverted to a back-five after the humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool in October and Wan-Bissaka has retained his place in the side.

In fact, he has not missed a minute of Premier League action this season.

The only time he has not made a matchday squad across all competitions this term is when he was suspended for their Champions League group game with Villareal.

“He’s always been a decent defender one-on-one, but he’s never been massively comfortable on the ball,” Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.

“It puts him in a position where you have to be better on the ball than defending one-on-one.

“You’ve put him in a position to expose his weakness rather than to exploit his strengths.

“That’s not particularly good management. You’re asking a player to do what he’s not very good at.”

Wan-Bissaka has featured in 114 games across all competitions for Man United since his £50million move from Crystal Palace in 2019.

The London-born star has scored just twice and provided 10 assists for the Reds in that time.

He is under contract at Old Trafford until the summer of 2024 after penning a five-year deal after he made the switch from Selhurst Park.
