Defensive signing tells Solskjaer – ‘ I joined Manchester United to play’

Man United, davies

Alex Telles says he moved to Manchester United to play – but is full of praise for Luke Shaw.

Telles signed for Porto from Galatasaray in 2016 and went on to win two Portuguese league titles and the Portuguese Cup in nearly 200 appearances for the club and he was the second signing for United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

He has made some impressive performances for the club since his move to Old Trafford and it looks like Solskjaer finally has a left-back that will be able to compete with the very best players in the game.

However, Shaw has enjoyed something of a renaissance this season in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s improving United team, and The Englishman’s solid performances have kept summer signing Telles out of action, with the Brazilian playing just 45 minutes out of their last six Premier League games.

But despite being impressed with Shaw, Telles has sent a clear warning to his new boss: “I’m very prepared to play,” Telles told United’s website ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup clash with Liverpool. “I’m also very happy with the performances of Luke and his hard work.

“I came here to play. And both me and Luke really develop together, both in training and games. I’ve played and have put in some good performances as well.

“United benefit from this as well, United the club, because we win by having good players available. And if needed I’m here, ready, focused and prepared to play.

“And once again I repeat that I’m really happy for Luke Shaw, his great performances and contributions.”

It will be interesting to see just how Solskjaer handles this because he is having the same problem with a number of other players, and they all look set to leave the club at the end of the season
