The midfielder Andreas Pereira got the chance to be on the first 11 of Manchester United for the second time in one month and showed the coach Ole Gunnar Solksjaer that he can contribute for the continuation of the good moment of the English Team. The Brazilian stood out in the victory against Southampton, on last Saturday, after giving an assist to Romelu Lukaku and also scoring his first goal for the Premier League.
“It was the most important goal of my career. It was the first time I scored in the Premier League, in the Stadium that I grew up in. It has a very special taste. It was very important because we were losing and it has changed our scenario. I am very happy to be able to help today with a goal and an assist so we could turn the match around,” said Andreas
Born in Belgium and son of a Brazilian, Andreas had his formation finalized on the base categories of Manchester United and got the professional team in 2014. After a loan to Granada and Valencia, he is searching for opportunities on the team that he first played – and, that’s why he celebrated the good match made against Southampton.
The beautiful goal scored in an outside shot – that equalized the match that would end up being won by United by 3-2 – was the second of the player with the shirt of Manchester United. Now, Andreas keeps with the expectative of being more times in the main team during the command of Solskjaer. In 2019, he only played six matches, being in the first 11 just two of them.
“We are here to help United and take it to the place it deserves. I am always available. We are one of the greatest teams in the world and our goal is always to win and conquer the biggest amount of titles possible. It was a beautiful goal and I hope it is the first of many,” completed the player.
