Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is delighted with what he has seen from Alex Telles.
The 27-year-old was brought in to compete as a left back against Luke Shaw and may have gone ahead of his rival in the pecking order after a series of energetic displays.
The Norwegian says he likes everything he has seen from Telles so far.
“A lot of things. Firstly, a great personality. An attitude that I love with players. Work hard, never give up,” said Solskjaer. ESPN Brazil. “When the game is over, he’s on his knees because he’s got everything. That’s one of the biggest things.
‘And the quality it has. Great left foot, great soccer brain, good fit.
“In combination with Edinson [Cavani], we found those two can give us something else. Due to the intersection of Alex and Edinson’s movement in the box.
“I think they can give us that extra little thing that we missed last season. We felt we had a lot of players with different qualities.
“We have, you know the forwards, Mason Greenwood, Martial, Marcus Rashford. Different types of attackers. And the fullbacks are different types of fullbacks.
“But the addition of these two has given us a different way of playing.”
