Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka has named Paris Saint-Germain winger Neymar as the toughest player he has ever faced.

According to Wan-Bissaka, it’s difficult playing against the Brazilian winger because he’s a player that likes to draw fouls.

“I’d say Neymar,” Wan-Bissaka told UEFA.com when asked to name the toughest winger he’s faced ahead of United’s Europa League last-16 first-leg clash with AC Milan.

“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.”

On how he dealt with the daunting task, Wan-Bissaka replied: “I think for him, it’s a bit of both, depending on where he is on the pitch.

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