Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has earned a brilliant new nickname from fans after a superb pre-season display in yesterday’s 2-2 draw with Brentford.

The Red Devils weren’t quite at full strength for this friendly match, but their squad players and youngsters gave a decent account of themselves, with Pereira pulling the strings in the middle of the park.

The 25-year-old has never really been a regular for Man Utd, having been sent out on loan three times now, to Granada, Valencia, and Lazio, respectively.

Pereira might now be hoping to stake his claim for a regular place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, even if there’s plenty of competition for places in that area of the pitch, which makes it a bit unlikely.
