‘He has never disappeared, he’s been working hard behind the scenes, always been available, always a player you can use in different positions,’ he said.

‘He is learning the game and I’m very happy for him. We work with him, we try to help everyone.

‘Dan came from the Championship up to Man United, hit a few goals in his first games it’s bound to take some energy away from you with the headlines and media attention but he has knuckled down and worked to get that confidence to believe in himself. Now he knows he is a good player.’
