Manchester United youngster Andreas Pereira has revealed that Head Coach Louis Van Gaal broke a promise to him about first team football and prevented a potential loan move away for him from the club.
The highly rated 20 year old is still seen as a future star at Old Trafford, but has seen his route into the first team blocked by the Dutchman.
Despite the broken promise and lack of first team chances, Pereira is remaining calm about his chances of progressing at Old Trafford.
Speaking to Goal he said “I wanted to be loaned out in January in order to play more football and to keep developing myself, but Van Gaal told me that he did not want me to be loaned out. He told me to stay in Manchester because he would use me and that I would play.”
“I told him that was fine and that if I could stay and play then I would. He did not let me leave. I took the decision and now I am training, doing my job and waiting for him to fulfil his word.”
“Of course I expected to play more, I think that I deserved the chance. I did well in the games that I had the opportunity to play, but football can be like that. My manager has not given me this opportunity yet and I will keep working hard, waiting for the chances.”
