Manchester United youngster Andreas Pereira enjoys fine performance against Club America

by Ben Topliss

Andreas Pereira gave Louis van Gaal a reminder of his talent this weekend with a superb performance in the 1-0 victory against Club America.

The midfielder came on at half-time and almost made an immediate impact but his fizzing shot went just wide of the post.

It set the tone for a bright and encouraging display as Pereira regularly beat his man using a variety of body feints and sharp turns.

Man United fans have been getting excited about the signings of Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Memphis Depay and Morgan Schneiderlin and rightly so.

However, it is important to remember that the club has some real talent already coming through in Pereira.

The 19-year-old enjoyed a fine U20 World Cup with Brazil earlier in the summer, scoring in the final, although he couldn’t prevent a 2-1 loss to Serbia.

Along with the likes of Memphis, Luke Shaw and James Wilson, United’s tradition of giving young players opportunities is alive and well. Pereira will be looking to make an impact under the guidance of Louis van Gaal next term.
