Andreas Pereira fires defiant message to Man Utd fans over criticism

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira is refusing to let the haters get him down.

The Brazilian has been used regularly during Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s tenure at Old Trafford.

He’s racked up 35 appearances in all competitions this season with the Norwegian chief not exactly awash with creativity in his side.

Pereira could feature against Club Brugge tonight in the Europa League. And, prior to the match, he took to social media to post a positive message.

"Focus on UEFA Europa League,” he wrote. “The Revolution begins within us. If we do it all can happen. Now is the time!"

But it wasn’t long before the trolls were out in force.

"You have to do better man," said one Facebook user. "To be a United player you must keep the standard higher than what you had shown so far."

Pereira replied succinctly to that barbed comment with a 'fist' emoji.

But another fan was even more vitriolic and chimed: "find a new club man."

Pereira then hit back defiantly.

"I will stay and fight for my place. My place is at Manchester United,” he wrote.

Not all fans have been happy with the club’s progress under Solskjaer.

However, chief executive Ed Woodward claims the club is moving in the right direction.

"Since our last call in November we have progressed to the knockout stages of the Europa League; we are through to the fifth round in the FA Cup, and we remain in the mix to qualify for the Champions League.

"This season is one of rebuild, with many changes to the squad – in terms of players who have left or gone out on loan; new players who we have brought into the club; and academy graduates that we have brought through to the first team.

"This process will continue as we implement our plan and our footballing vision under Ole and his coaching staff.

"While we still have much to do, we are progressing with confidence in the right direction."
