Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has revealed the impact the club has had on making him the player he is today.
The youngster joined Man United from PSV Eindhoven four years ago and has made his way into the first-team squad. Pereira made his full debut in the Capital One Cup against Ipswich Town and scored his first goal for the club in the game with a delightful free-kick.
The progress the Brazilian has made has been clear for everyone to see and his development is encouraging.
Pereira puts a lot of his success down to what both PSV and United have done for him.
“PSV helped me a lot when I was young and United have helped make me the player I am today,” Pereira said.
“They gave me everything that I had to learn and I’m learning every day here. At United, they teach me about things off the pitch as well, how to deal with stuff with your family and how to be a man. That part is very important, not just the football side but off the pitch as well. PSV helped me a lot with that too.”
Pereira is slowly growing into a more and more important player at United as he gets more opportunities. Having recently signed a new contract at the club, his development will be closely monitored by fans as well as the club. Pereira certainly has the ability to do great things at Old Trafford and the early signs have been encouraging. He will hope to get another opportunity to prove what he is all about when Middlesbrough visit in the League Cup on Wednesday and repay the manager’s trust in him.
