Crystal Palace

Milivojevic expects big things for Wan-Bissaka

10th April 2019, 16:55 by Tom Hill

Crystal Palace skipper Luka Milivojevic says Aaron Wan-Bissaka is set for a big career after an excellent 2018/19 campaign.

The Croydon-born defender has been described as the perfect team-mate by the Serbia international following a breakthrough season at Selhurst Park.

Wan-Bissaka has won four Player of the Month awards so far this term and he is reportedly attracting interest from the likes of Manchester United.

Both Milivojevic and Wan-Bissaka have played key roles in Palace moving away from the relegation zone in recent weeks and the former is expecting the youngster to keep improving.

He told the club's official website: "You know that guy is something special. From my point of view, what I like is that since he has come through into the dressing room, he is just focused, quiet and working very hard.

"In every single game he is always in the top three for us in terms of performers and you know it is not easy at that age. One year and a bit ago he was playing in the academy and he didn't play at the proper level of the Premier League but this season he is one of the best players.

"He keeps himself very cool, very calm and that is something, as a captain and his teammate, that I respect a lot. I must say to him that he needs to try and stay the same, because like that, he has already proved so much and got to this level, and I think soon big things will come."
