Watch: Facundo Pellistri goes on brilliant run as he assists for Uruguay

Facundo Pellistri grabbed a sublime assist as he ran out for Uruguay vs Venezuela last night.

Manchester United Football Club have had to send plenty of players out on loan this season, purely due to the fact that their first-team squad is jam-packed with players.

The overflowing dressing room has meant that United’s next generation of talent haven’t really gotten their chance this season. One player who certainly fits the bill as a future star is Facundo Pellistri.

Our Uruguay international is with Alaves on loan this term and despite his struggles at domestic level, that hasn’t stopped the Uruguay national side taking a gamble on him.

Last night, he’d go on a dazzling run for his country, on the way to picking up an assist during a 4-1 victory over Venezuela.

It wasn’t just the assist from the 20-year-old. It was a performance of real skill and quality, that inspired Uruguay to an important victory on the night, with Edinson Cavani also playing (and scoring) in that game.

The question about where Pellistri’s long-term future lies does remain. Obviously, United are pretty well off in the attacking position, meaning the winger may find opportunities limited, particularly in the short-term.

I guess it all depends on the new manager. Someone like Mauricio Pochettino could be ideal for Pellistri, as the Argentine loves working with young players.

However, if United go in a different direction and end up hiring the big name that loves marquee signings, Pellistri could well find himself out on loan again next term.

One thing we can all agree on is that Pellistri is immensely talented and with a little luck, the Uruguayan youngster could go right the way to the top.
