Manchester United has a stronger team than last season, but manager Jose Mourinho has admitted to the media that this summer there was a transfer that disappointed him and surprised him.
It’s about leaving Andreas Pereira who, as a loaned player, decided to play in the ranks of Valencia, a decision that Mourinho did not like.
– What happened to Pereira is a completely personal decision of the football player. It’s a solution I disagree with and a solution that I sincerely believe is not in its favor. Pereira disappointed me because I thought she had the potential to stay here and fight for a place, to fight to become an important player for Manchester United
– Someone can interpret it as a player who wants to play each week, but another can say that he is a football player who does not want to fight fiercely for something important and big, and in this case it is becoming part of Manchester United. We still have a deal with him and we can get it back, so it’s not a dramatic situation, it was simply a disappointing moment for me, “Mourinho said.
Pereira has a contract with United until June 2019, with an extension option for another year.
