Man United fans urge club to sign Bouna Sarr after Europa League final display

Marseille right-back Bouna Sarr impressed for his side despite their 3-0 Europa League final defeat against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night, and Manchester United fans have told Jose Mourinho to sign the 26-year-old this summer.

The Portuguese boss may well be looking for a long-term replacement for stand-in captain Antonio Valencia, who has come under heavy criticism from his own supporters on Twitter this season because of some of his displays, and the Frenchman may have caught the manager’s eye.

Sarr looked more than comfortable from a defensive point of view and was largely successful in the tackle, while he also got forward well to help his team, although this game suggested he would need some more work on his crossing if he was to be a first-team star at Old Trafford.

Man United supporters were quick to have their say on the right-back’s performance via social media, and while one said “Sarr from Marseille looks like an awesome replacement for Tony Valencia”, another said he “already looks better than Valencia” during the match.
