Irwin on Manchester United Brazilian Signing Telles

Former Red Devils defender believes the summer signing could be “a huge asset” for Solskjaer’s side.

Alex Telles

may not be David Beckham but he still can have a key role in

Manchester United

’s squad. Before joining the Red Devils Telles had scored 26 goals and gave 57 assists as Porto defender.

The 27-year-old who had been sidelined since testing positive for Coronavirus could be returning to the pitch now that his teammate

Luke Shaw

Irwin told Manchester United’s website: “It's an opportunity for him now, with the games coming up, to get his foot in there.”

“And sometimes it's through lack of injuries that you manage to hold down the place of the left-back position.”

“I mean, we haven't seen him too much [from him] defensively wise, but the Premier League is a tough league and he's a full-back, so he'll have to be good defensively. But we've already seen his qualities going forward in that game in the 70 or so minutes he played.”

“There's no doubt that, on set-pieces, he's going to be a huge asset to us in that respect.”

“Also, I'm not going to compare him to David Beckham! But it looks like he's got a fantastic left foot that can whip a ball in with pace, which our strikers would love to get in at the end of.”
