Versatile Piero Mingoia earns praise at Cambridge United

Piero Mingoia’s role at Cambridge United has been praised by manager Shaun Derry.

Given the sparsity of right-backs last week, the 25-year-old was asked to take on the role of right wing-back against Plymouth Argyle.

And he did not look out of place, putting in an accomplished performance in both attack and defence.

“I thought Piero gave a top performance last week,” said U’s boss Derry.

“We asked him to do a job for the team in a different position to what he has been used to and I think that just highlights what kind of character he is, and just him absolutely dying for the shirt.

“That’s why I love having him, not just on a match day but in and around the training ground. He is a great lad and he is full of ability as well.

“When you’ve got that blend, that’s why he has been a really good signing for us.”

He added: “Over the next four or five games until that point arrives when we’ve got our full-backs back in the building then we’re going to be asking people to put in a shift for the team, and Piero sure did that last weekend.”
