Aaron Wan-Bissaka: Coach who discovered Crystal Palace star thinks he would be ‘perfect fit’ for Manchester United
The coach who discovered Aaron Wan-Bissaka thinks he would be a perfect fit for Manchester United.
The 21-year-old has been linked with a move away from Selhurst Park with a number of top European clubs reported to be interested.
Colin Omogbehin founded South London club Junior elite, where the right-back started out.
Omogbehin was manager of Crystal Palace’s under-16s at the time and brought Wan-Bissaka to the club when he was just 11.
Now head coach of Fulham under-18s, he thinks the youngster would do well at Manchester United.

“The thing I am surprised about is he ended up as a right-back.
“I always thought he’d end up as an attacking player.”
