Dalot praises Sir Jim Ratcliffe

Diogo Dalot has praised Sir Jim Ratcliffe for the influence he has already had at Manchester United.

The right-back spoke to the media post-match on Monday and had a lot to say.

On the Wigan win, Dalot said: “We created a lot of chances, but the difference in the score today was putting the ball in the net a little more with the chances we had,” he said. “I think we controlled the game, had some good moments and I’m glad that we won.

“I think it [the early goal] gave comfort to the team, we were looking for the goal, so we could be a little bit more calm, not rushing to score. I think we created a lot and could have scored even more goals. Overall, that’s what we missed today.”

Dalot was then asked about Ratcliffe’s influence and added: “He brings some good energy, new energy, hopefully with positive feelings. New things to conquer, looking forward to the future with a good energy and they are bringing that.

“You can feel in Carrington already the motivation they’ve brought in and hopefully we can win a lot of things together.”
