Van Anholt: “Aaron is amazing defensively, stronger than Trent”

Patrick van Aanholt, the Crystal Palace defender, is persuaded that Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the strongest Englishman full-back.

The 22-year-old Wan Bissaka, at the start of 2019-20 season, joined Manchester United from the South London club and quickly claimed an undoubted place in the starting line-up of Red Devils.

In 2020 Premier League Alexander-Arnold, who already achieved a medal of winners in the Champions League is almost assured of finishing as a champion, being a year younger than his United competitor. Van Aanholt still favors his former team-mate.

When asked about United’s young leader,  Van Aanholt told the Counter Attack podcast, “Better than Alexander-Arnold? Without a possibility of doubt.” 

“They are different athletes. Aaron is amazing defensively, stronger than Trent.”

“Yeah, Trent has had his attacking, his right foot, and his corners. But if you question Wilf Zaha who he’d prefer to play against, Trent or Wan-Bissaka any other day, then I guess he’ll choose Trent.”

“I have admiration for Trent and with his assists, he does all because he’s amazing but defensively just ask Sterling how strong Wan-Bissaka is,” he said.

“He’s one of the best right-backs, I think he may be, he’s nice at defending, but he requires more goals or assists to his name.”

“Defending comes first, so you need to play in the modern game, so at United, you have most of the pitch, and move in and demonstrate what you got, so he did well.”
