Treble winner Irwin hails Man Utd market work this season

Manchester United Treble winner Denis Irwin has hailed the market work of the club this season.

Harry Maguire, Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka joined United last summer before Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo were signed in January, on permanent and loan agreements respectively.

Irwin told talkSPORT: "I think pre-Christmas it was up and down. The new signings have been great, there's no doubt about that, every single one of them.

"Wan-Bissaka has been brilliant, Maguire, Daniel James, but in particular the signing in January of Fernandes has really kicked the club on.

"He (Fernandes) gives the team a bit more of a risk factor, a bit more going forward, and I think that's improved an awful lot.

"Also, I think within those 11 games there were nine clean sheets, so I think the defence has come on strong as well."
