Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has named Neymar as the toughest opponent he has faced. Wan-Bissaka joined United from Crystal Palace in 2019. During this season, the 23-year-old has made overall 38 appearances in which he has scored 2 goals and provided 3 assists.

The Red Devils faced PSG in the Champions League group stages this season and Wan-Bissaka played in both games for the full 90 minutes. The first game ended in United’s 2-1 victory, while the second one ended in the Reds Devils 3-1 defeat. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side finished 3rd in the group and didn’t qualify for the last-16.

“I’d say Neymar,” Wan-Bissaka told UEFA.com.

“That was a player that was quite challenging, but I was always up for it, and I enjoyed it, the experience, to be playing against him. That meant a lot.”

“I think for him, it’s a bit of both, depending on where he is on the pitch,” he added.

“He’s a player that likes to draw fouls, and so for me, if I’m up against him, it’s [the task is] just not to give him any fouls because that’s what he wants.”
