Sofyan Amrabat’s eye-catching performance during his debut with Manchester United on Tuesday has caught the attention of international football fans.
Amrabat joined Manchester United on a loan deal from Fiorentina on transfer deadline day and made his debut in the Carabao Cup’s third round against Crystal Palace on Tuesday.
The Atlas Lion showed world-class versatility and skill during the Red Devils’ 3-0 victory.
Amrabat’s midfield skills left the club’s technical staff as well as its fans impressed.
“Supporters at Old Trafford showed their appreciation for his authoritative, creative, and hard-working performance across 60 minutes,” the club wrote on Wednesday, noting that fans are looking forward to seeing him on the pitch again.
The club also quoted Amrabat, who expressed satisfaction with his debut and the club’s victory.
“We played very well and most importantly, we won 3-0,” the Moroccan midfielder said, emphasising that he has been working since his childhood to achieve the move.
“I worked very hard for my whole career and life, so it was amazing to play here,” he added.
The club also picked up some comments from football fans.
One of the commentators hailed Amrabat’s eye-catching performances, stressing that the Atlas Lion “brings more balance” to Manchester United while describing him as a “very good addition.”
Another fan described Amrabat as excellent, highlighting his capacity to cover the entire pitch by himself.
“I love players who can play in different positions,” they said, according to the club.
Another fan believes that Amrabat was the missing piece in Manchester United’s field.
