Former Premier League defender Danny Mills has blamed Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskajer for Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s struggles this season.

Wan-Bissaka has struggled for form and has received heavy criticisms for his below par performances this season.

Mills believes Solskjaer’s decision to play him as an attacking wingback in 3-5-2 formation rather than in a more defensive shape in a back four is the reason behind AWB’s struggles this season.

“He’s always been a decent defender one-on-one, but he’s never been massively comfortable on the ball,” Mills told Football Insider.

“It puts him in a position where you have to be better on the ball than defending one-on-one.

“You’ve put him in a position to expose his weakness rather than to exploit his strengths.

“That’s not particularly good management. You’re asking a player to do what he’s not very good at.”
