Sofyan Amrabat believes that Manchester United might find a solution after their poor start to the season
As the summer transfer window neared its close, Manchester United finally secured Amrabat’s signature. They will pay an £8.5 million loan fee, with the option to buy him for £21.4 million next summer.
Amrabat has made five appearances for the team so far but has struggled to leave a mark, with two losses in five games.
Amrabat told club media (h/t Manchester Evening News) :
“I think I can say a lot of things, but I don’t want to use them as an excuse You always have a moment that maybe it will be a little bit difficult, and now I think it’s a bit like that at the moment.”
“But we just started. We still have a very long season, a long way [to go]. I think we have played good games [and had] a lot of positive and good things.”
“Maybe with a bit more luck, we’d have won the games that we didn’t win. So I have a lot of confidence and I think yeah, we work very hard every day.”
“Nobody will give it to you. You have to work for it. But we work very hard and I believe it will be fine. It will be good.”
However, his poor form is largely due to the Moroccan being shuffled across different positions due to the Red Devils’ injury woes. Lately, he’s been filling in at left-back due to injuries to Tyrell Malacia, Luke Shaw, and Sergio Reguilon.
Jadon Sancho is sidelined from first-team training, and Amad is recovering from a knee injury but is close to a comeback. Facundo Pellistri has started just once in three years. However, for Amrabat to be at his best, the injuries in defence need to subside.
Captain Bruno Fernandes often shifted to the right last season and might do so again this season. The good thing is we have Mason Mount who fill in the attacking areas.
On October 21, Manchester United will face Sheffield United at Bramall Lane, looking to build on their exciting 2-1 win against Brentford, with Scott McTominay netting twice in extra time.
Amrabat’s optimism could boost his performance and inspire other United players to adopt a positive mindset, potentially leading to more crucial victories.
