Man Utd fullback Dalot: AC Milan loan so good for me

Diogo Dalot is eager for more regular football after returning to Manchester United.

The Portuguese defender benefitted from a strong season on loan with AC Milan, helping the Rossoneri to second place in Serie A.

Now the 22-year-old is back with the Reds first-team squad at our training camp in St Andrews, and he wants to build on the 'fantastic' time he had in Italy.

“Keep developing," Dalot replied to asked about his hopes for 2021/22. “When I had a season like last season obviously the things start to get more demanding as well.

“I want to keep playing, I want to keep giving everything I have and improve. I know last season was fantastic but I can do even more.

“I think I was one of the only players in the [AC Milan] squad that was available for all the games during the season and for me that was a very good point as well besides of course the minutes and games I played, which were a lot.

“Like I said, it was perfect. I met very good people in the club, very good people in the city and it was fantastic.

“Every season you learn a little bit more," he continued. “Not just about yourself but about life, about football and about other experiences as well.

“The chance to play in another fantastic league brought me some very good stuff, not just for football but for my life as well.

“Experience-wise it was fantastic and in the end I'm very happy with what I did last season."
