Matteo Darmian says he already feels settled at Manchester United and is confident his side can kick on following their decent start to the campaign.

The Italy international was one of a number of new faces to arrive at Old Trafford over the summer and has impressed in the previously troublesome right-back role.

After finishing fourth last season, the Red Devils have bigger targets this time around with Champions League football back on the agenda.

Louis van Gaal’s men currently sit fifth in the table having collected seven points from their opening four matches and will face arguably their toughest test to date next time out against Liverpool.

United are currently the 1.91 favourites to win the clash, with the draw 3.40 and the Reds 4.00.

At 25, Darmian still has plenty of scope for improvement and is understandably ambitious having joined such a big club at arguably the perfect time in his career.

The former Torino man admits he has been pleased with the way he has settled at the club and insists there is more to come.

He told Corriere della Sera: “The important thing for me is that even though I’m a foreigner, I settled in straight away at Manchester United, thanks also to my team-mates and the staff who made me feel part of the group.

“I put myself at the disposal of the coach immediately, with the utmost effort and humility.

“I want to stay true to myself. I am someone who worked hard to get where I am today and I intend to continue doing that. Manchester United is a beginning and not the apex of my career.”
