Manchester United youngster Andreas Pereira is hopeful of earning another opportunity in the first-team in the coming weeks.
Pereira has featured against the likes of Middlesbrough, Ipswich Town and Wolfsburg this term and he has generally looked lively on the pitch.
The 19-year-old still has a long way to go but Louis van Gaal has often spoke of how he has been encouraged by what he has seen from the Brazilian.
Pereira insisted he is putting in work on the training ground in an attempt to catch the eye.
“I think I’m progressing well and I’m working hard, as usual, every day. I’m trying to do my best and impress the manager and keep doing like I’m doing. Hopefully, I can be involved in some more games,” Pereira said.
Asked about the West Bromwich Albion game this weekend, Pereira added: ”I think they’re a very good team and I think, as well, it will be hard because there are some players that are from United, so they know how we play. It’ll be a strange feeling to play against Fletch and Jonny and not with them, but it will be nice to see them.”
It is important for van Gaal to pick and choose his moments when it comes to Pereira as the forward should not be thrown in at the deep end too soon. Pereira may not be able to fully show off his talents this season but if he continues to work hard there is no why he can’t become an important player for United in years to come.
