Ex-Man Utd coach Meulensteen against Trippier signing: You've got Wan-Bissaka!

Former Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen believes the club should not sign a right back in the coming months.

The current Premier League leaders are being linked with a move for Atletico Madrid's Kieran Trippier.

The former Tottenham man could be heading back to the Premier League in the summer.

But Meulensteen, who was at United under Sir Alex Ferguson as a coach, thinks Aaron Wan-Bissaka is United's man for the right back slot.

He told Stadium Astro: "Not at the moment [sign a right back].

"It's always good to have two players for a position because you need back-up but Aaron Wan-Bissaka has done fantastically well.

"He's young still, he's very fit and learns every day in training.

"He is one of the best one-v-one defenders in the league and I'm sure the coaching staff are working hard with him on his game.

"He is there, for me, to stay for a long, long time. He was an excellent buy for United."
