Love praised by Man Utd legend

Love came on for Matteo Darmian at Sunderland, and the 21-year-old is a player that former United academy director Brian McClair knows well.

“Making your debut for such a big club like Manchester United is nerve-wracking for any player, let alone a young player in such a high-pressure environment like a Premier League match,” McClair told Manchester Evening News.

“He’d have no doubt been apprehensive, but he was positive in his involvement in the match.

“From that first moment onwards he settled in to the flow of the match, and along with United’s other young full-back (Cameron Borthwick-Jackson), he was one of United’s most attacking threats on Saturday.”
