Reports are out claiming that Manchester United fullback Matteo Darmian is proud of being likened with former captain Gary Neville.
The Italian international joined United last summer from Torino.
“Obviously Gary Neville was a great player for the club and just the thought of being compared to him is a marvellous thing for me. I will try to go out on the pitch every weekend and play my best for the team,” he told manutd.com.
“Well, when you arrive at such a big club with lots of great players, you realise there is stiff competition. So, like I have always done and I always will do, I will fight for my place and try to get better and better.”
