Andreas Pereira inspired by Angel di Maria and Ander Herrera in training

Andreas Pereira has been left in awe of Angel di Maria and his goalscoring in training with Manchester United.

The 18-year-old Brazilian joined up with the first-team under Louis van Gaal and has been training with them for the past few weeks.

He is yet to make a Premier League appearance for United but is working hard in order to reach that milestone and speaking to ManUtd.com, Pereira chose a goal scored by Di Maria as the best he has seen so far: “I can think back, a couple of weeks ago, to when Di Maria scored an unbelievable goal.

“We did some finishing after training with the forwards and he scored a brilliant strike. He controlled it and bounced the ball into the top corner. Honestly, it was incredible!”

When asked who the best player he has seen in training, Pereira added: “Everyone’s been really good but the best in training, for me, I really admire Angel Di Maria. He’s very good in training and in matches as well. Ander Herrera too. For the way he plays and speaks with the players, he’s an example. And he plays in my position.”

Tyler Blackett also singled out Di Maria as the player who has impressed him most in training so the Argentinian is having quite the impact on players as well as fans already as well.
