Diogo Dalot admits to facing a big fight at Manchester United with the Portuguese still looking to prove his worth at the club.

Diogo Dalot is pleased to have opened his goal account for the club but admits to be struggling to prove his worth.

The Portuguese joined the Red Devils when fellow countryman Jose Mourinho brought him in at the time.

Having arrived with limited experience, Dalot was purchased to be more of a long-term option.

The 20-year-old recently opened his account for United and was pleased to get his first goal for the club, calling it a release of frustration.

“It was unbelievable. It was like a release of some frustration, as well,” Dalot told United’s official podcast.

“It’s been a tough one-and-a-half years here, because of the injuries, and it was a big fight for me since I came.

“That moment was a moment to be proud, as well, because scoring goals is always unbelievable and I didn’t score for one or two years, so it was a very good moment.”

Injuries have limited Dalot this season, who has only played 79 league minutes this season.
