Yves Bissouma has established himself as one of the best holding midfielders in the Premier League this season and former Manchester United winger, Keith Gillespie, who spent just two years at Old Trafford, spoke exclusively to This is Futbol about how the Brighton midfielder is good enough for Man United.
Is Bissouma good enough for Man United?
The Mali international has earned rave reviews this season for his tackling and ability to distribute the ball intelligently and he has won 66 of his 103 attempted tackles for Brighton.
Brighton themselves have earned a lot of praise this season for their attacking and possession-based play but it is Bissouma who allows this to happen and Gillespie spoke exclusively to TIF about how the midfielder is good enough to play for the Red Devils, he said:
“I really like him. I think he’s a really good player who gets about the pitch and is comfortable on the ball.
“I know there’s been talk about him – is he Man United class? I’d say he is Man United class.”
After Man United’s 4-2 defeat at home to Liverpool, Roy Keane blasted their midfield duo of Fred and Scott McTominay claiming they would never win the league with the two of them starting.
The £25,000 per week midfielder has been an ever-present for Brighton this season when he has been available for selction having only missed two games this season which have all been enforced through suspension.
