Diogo Dalot is eager to work hard in training to impress Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and earn a first team spot.

Diogo Dalot was signed by Jose Mourinho this summer for £20million from FC Porto.

Dalot was injured when he initially joined United this summer but has worked very hard to regain match fitness and made his debut for United’s Under-23 side last week.

The Portuguese defender has now set his sights on earning selection to United’s first team this season.

“If the manager thinks I’m ready and he wants me to play, I will play, for sure,” he told ESPN, via Team Talk.

“I’m going to prepare myself for that and as soon as he wants me, I’ll be ready.

“For sure, I’m going to become a better player here. The team have already helped me a lot and I’ve learned a lot in a short space of time from Antonio [Valencia], Matteo [Darmian], Ashley [Young] and Luke [Shaw].

“I’m looking forward to learning more. I think I can get better. We always think we can do better and I have to keep improving.”
