“Everything about him is class” – Solskjaer heaps praise on Varane
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Raphael Varane’s conduct on and off the field marked him out as Manchester United player even before he arrived at the club.
The Red Devils signed Varane on a four-year deal from Real Madrid this month and the Frenchman was unveiled before the club’s 5–1 win against Leeds United last weekend.
Varane enjoyed a trophy-laden 10 years at Madrid and Solskjaer appears to be in awe of the Frenchman and his exploits.
“The Champions League wins he’s had, the World Cup wins… everything about him is class,” the Man United manager said of Varane. “He’s a quick, strong defender, good in the air, he can play with both feet.
“The short answer is everything about him is what you want. He’s been humble, he’s been inquisitive. He asks questions. He doesn’t want to learn by a mistake in the game, he wants to learn it on the training field before he comes on the pitch. Everything about him has been impressive”
United face Southampton this weekend and Varane could be in line to make his debut.
