Raphael Varane was handed his Manchester United debut on Sunday at Wolves and played a key role in helping the Red Devils secure a 1-0 victory.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Varane adapted to the intensity of Premier League football without any problems away at Wolves.

Solskjaer said: “This was ‘welcome to the Premier League’ – tempo, the hustle-bustle, tackle, have to defend counter-attacks.

“Top, top performance. He’s good in the air, he’s so composed on the ball and he’s so experienced and nothing phases him.

“He was good in the dressing room before the game, half-time and so I’m delighted with his performance. I thought he showed his class.”
