Never realised his uncle was the club secretary at the Mancs... John Alexander.
Fine well in the game in my opinion considering the pressure of such a fixture..
Not just that Shabs, hes not a natural defender, he's was only converted there in the last 18months, he's learnt the role as an opportunity to break into the first team, he played cm, wide midfield before that.. In that last 18 months he's played RB and at CB on a few occasions to learn the art of defending.. He's struggled at that level on occasions when teams have tried to get at him.. But he's improving, and whilst not maybe a natural defender, but he is a natural footballer and has one thing the modern game thrives on, pace..
So not only is he 18, not only making his debut at one of the toughest away days in the calendar, not only targeted as a weak link by Mourinho and given one of the quickest players in Utds line up to run at him
I thought he did very well given all that.. He got caught a couple of times but grew into it as the game went on
Nothing but praise for the lad
