Manchester United Football Club have always promoted youth and homegrown over spending big wherever possible, and the latest youngster coming through the ranks is Andreas Pereira. So-much-so that he didn’t get shipped out on loan, where proven players like Adnan Januzaj did.
Pereira, 19, is making great inroads, and he certainly has Louis van Gaal to thank for that.
Andreas Pereira said: “Van Gaal is a great coach. I love working with him. He listens to everyone and values everyone.”
Its nice to hear that Louis van Gaal seemingly has time and effort for every member in the squad, even the youngsters who haven’t really featured like Andreas Pereira.
With the squad looking so thin at the moment, the 19-year old could get his big chance in the cup competitions this year. If he can prove to Louis van Gaal how valuable he can be, the Iron Tulip would have no problem throwing him in at the deep end as we’ve seen with other youngsters.
