Man Utd winger Obertan delighted with first Premiership start

Manchester United winger Gabriel Obertan was delighted to make his full Premiership debut in their victory over Wolves.

The Frenchman was handed a start by manager Sir Alex Ferguson after impressing in last week's Champions League win at Wolfsburg.

Obertan told manutd.com: "Yes, I'm quite happy. I just wanted to play my game and show my qualities, hopefully I did that. I felt I was better in the first half when I slowed down a bit."

Asked if he was nervous, Obertan says he was helped by the presence of Patrice Evra.

"Not really, because Pat [Evra] was behind me. He knows how I play so it's easier for me. He can place me when we're defending, it's very helpful. But really everyone was encouraging me."
