Pereira: I’ll Fight For United Spot

share on:

Andreas Pereira is a United player who is currently on loan at Granada and even though he is enjoying life in the La Liga, he is determined to play for United next season.

The 21-year-old forward is currently undergoing a season long loan at Granada and has started 25 of their 28 games.

And even though Granada are not in a good place on the table, they sit at 19th, he has scored four goals and assisted two.

“I’m playing well,” Pereira told “I’m trying to do my job and am getting a lot of minutes. For me, it’s been very good playing here at a high level in Spain, in La Liga, every week.

“I get to train and focus hard for the games and, for me, it’s been very good. Unfortunately for the team, it’s been a bit difficult this season but we’re trying to get out of this situation as quickly as possible.”

And he has kept in regular contact with both the coaching staff and his team-mates at his parent club throughout this season.

Pereira said: “It was nice to hear from Jose Mourinho and it’s nice that the people at United trust me and I always feel that they are watching. For me, that’s very important. I’m doing my thing here but I’m still a United player.

“[Assistant manager] Rui Faria sometimes sends me messages and asks how it is going. He contacted me to say I scored a good goal and I am happy when I get recognised for doing good things and to know that they’re watching.

“I speak with Adnan [Januzaj] sometimes and [Paul] Pogba, Timothy [Fosu-Mensah], [Eric] Bailly, [Antonio] Valencia. I keep in touch with lots of players, [Juan] Mata too, as I was there a long time and they’re my friends.

“I miss them as well, to be honest, so it’s good to keep in touch. Sometimes, when we have days off, we try to see each other but it’s difficult with the flights here as there are none direct from Manchester.”

“It’s my dream to play for United on a regular basis,” Pereira said. “It always has been a dream but now I’m here at Granada and I have to focus here to get us out of this situation.

“My dream will always be there and, next season, I will fight for it.”
