Man United fans react to Darmian starting Yeovil clash

Matteo Darmian was among the players that came into the Manchester United team for Friday’s FA Cup fourth-round clash against Yeovil Town.

Darmian has really struggled for football this season, and had been strongly tipped to leave Old Trafford during the January transfer window.

That might still be the case, but the 36-time Italy international was named in the United XI for the clash with League Two side on Friday night.

It was the 28-year-old’s 12th United appearance of the season, and the majority of those have come in the cup competitions due to the form of Antonio Valencia at right-back.

Whilst promising defender Axel Tuanzebe has been sent on loan to Aston Villa, Darmian is still being picked by United boss Jose Mourinho.

It would be fair to say that the United supporters have not been impressed with Darmian’s performances this season, and many were shocked when he was named in the XI against Yeovil.
