The 19-year-old Diogo Dalot made his first appearance for Manchester United on Wednesday against Young Boys.

Club’s head coach Jose Mourinho is confident that the player can put in the ten years for United. For Mourinho, the full-back had delivered an assured performance in the 3-0 win on Wednesday in the Champions League.

“It [Dalot performance] was a very good, solid performance after knee surgery. Everyone can see the potential and everyone could see he’s a 19-year-old player who has more than 10 years to play for Manchester United,” Mourinho said, according to Sky Sports.

“I want to be also nice to Luke [Shaw], because both played at the same level. They played very well. Our danger came from both. They had fantastic movement, they had depth, they had crosses, assists and were involved in the most dangerous actions. They defended well, too.

“We knew we had to win this match, we knew it was very important for us to go into the next three matches with Valencia and Juventus twice with these three points and we did that.”
