Darmian In The Dark As To Why Mourinho Does Not Pick Him

share on:

Manchester United defender, Matteo Darmian has no inkling as to why Mourinho will not select him for matches, despite his decision to fight for the club.

The Italian has been lucky enough to feature in United’s last three games, due to injuries sustained by Antonio Valencia, Luke Shaw and Chris Smalling. Prior to that he had not made a PL start all season before the stalemate against Burnley last month.

With Valencia still put injured due to a broken arm, Darmian could be picked to feature against Arsenal, however, Mourinho played Ashley Young in the right-back position, Darmian favours in the match against Swansea.

When asked to explain his limited game time, Darmian told Rai Sport: “I don’t know why, that’s a difficult question to answer.

“The coach has to make his decisions and we players have to accept them. I always worked hard and gave my best when called upon and I’ll continue to do that.

“I certainly don’t lack determination and that is fundamental, especially during a period where you don’t play as much.

“From the first day I have put myself at the disposal of the team and tried to prove myself to the coach.”

Probed on reports linking him to Inter, Darmian said: “I don’t know, it’s early to talk about the transfer market. Tomorrow I return to Manchester and we have an important match against Arsenal, one everyone wants to play in.”
