The future of the 27 year old Italian defender MatteoDarmian has recently been put into question as he has recently been seeing less time on the pitch at least in comparison to his debut season with Manchester United which was back on July of 2015.
During MatteoDarmian’s debut season at Old Trafford, he managed to make 26 Premier League appearances and in their current campaign of 2016-17. The amount of appearances has been dropped to 17 with only 3 more league matches remaining.
MatteoDarmian himself is starting to feel the pressure of not being a regular starter in Manchester United as the Italian player said that there are a lot of great players trying to secure their position in the main team.
“I don’t think it is the right time to speak about my future. Now is the time to think about playing against Arsenal on Sunday and nothing more’’
“At the end of the season, we will see what happens. It is normal that when you play for Manchester United there is a lot of competition for places from great players. When the manager gives me an opportunity, I try to do my best and that is it. I want to help the team achieve our objectives and then let’s see.” Manchester United’s MatteoDarmian said.
The contract of MatteoDarmian sees him staying in Old Trafford at least until 2019 but despite having his near future secured with the Premier League club, the future of the Italian defender has recently been put into question and the player himself stated that he will not enter in these kinds of discussions until the end of the 2016-17 season.
Before Jose Mourinho had arrived to Old Trafford, Darmian played a much more influential role but when the Portuguese made his way to Manchester United, it has significantly affected the amount of playing time of Darmian.
