Manchester United midfielder Sofyan Amrabat highlights his drive and aspiration
Amrabat started his first game for United on Tuesday’s 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup third round.
United signed Amrabat from Serie A side Fiorentina in a season-long loan deal with an option to buy the Moroccan.
The Moroccan international talked to Sky Sports to emphasize his drive in helping United to have a successful season. Amrabat further discussed his desire to stay at the club. He said:
“The only thing I can do is give everything that I have, to do my best to try to help the team. I hope we have a fantastic season, I hope we can win something, and then later we will see what will happen. Of course, I would love to stay here, but that’s not important for me, I don’t look too far in the future.”
The 27-year-old showed his versatility by playing as a make-shift left-back for the Red Devils and giving an excellent performance. United manager Erik ten Hag substituted Amrabat after the 61st minute as the player was not completely match-fit.
The Athletic reported that United pushed through the Amrabat deal despite the staff finding a ‘minor back injury’ during the medical. The Red Devils deemed that the injury was not serious enough to withdraw from the transfer deal.
Amrabat had not started a game since his former side Fiorentina lost 1-2 against West Ham in the UEFA Europa Conference League final on June 8th.
Motivated to live up to the expectations that accompany wearing the United jersey, Amrabat possesses all the qualities and experience required to achieve the goals he has set for himself.

We believe that Ten Hag will gradually increase the game time for the Moroccan to prevent any further injury scares. Amrabat can establish himself as a regular presence on the Red Devils’ team sheet if he continues to perform at this level. Furthermore, the Moroccan’s versatility and willingness to fulfil any role his manager demands will be a significant asset.
