Andreas Pereira hails Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for giving youth a chance

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has vowed to repay the faith shown to him by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after hailing the Norwegian for giving the youth a chance.

Pereira had failed to nail down a place at United in the previous regimes and was sent on loan so many times before the arrival of the Norwegian but the 24-year-old has made 37 appearances for the English giants this season.

As quoted by the club’s website, Pereira said: “Even when I came to United at such a young age, it's, of course, a massive club, but I know that they are willing to give youth a chance.

“That is what happened with me. Ole knows we will always be there for him. The young players give our faith and do everything to protect him, as he gives all his trust to us.

“I'm very honoured and that's why, as well, I want to stay at United. I want to fight for him, win games and win trophies.”

Perreira has come under scrutiny for his performances with a section of the club fans asking him to leave but he has always maintained that he would do anything required to succeed at the club.

The Brazilian has been part of the United team that had a brilliant turnaround before the Premier League shutdown with Pereira featuring in their last Europa League game where they beat LASK 5-0 5-0; the midfielder scoring their last goal in the game.
