Man United fans fear for future of Pereira after Mourinho criticism

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he is disappointed that Andreas Pereira decided to join Valencia last week, and Red Devils fans now fear for the youngster’s future.

The 21-year-old was an impressive performer for United during pre-season, and he seemed set to remain at Old Trafford until January at the earliest.

However, he didn’t feature in any of the club’s four matchday squads in August and decided to secure a move away in order to play regularly.

Mourinho told the Manchester Evening News: “Andreas Pereira was a personal decision that I don’t agree with.

“A decision I don’t think honestly I don’t think is the best decision for him, a decision that disappoints me a little bit, because I think he has the potential to be here fighting for a position, for opportunities, and fighting to be a Manchester United player.”

Man United supporters were quick to have their say on Mourinho’s comments via social media, and some believe that his Red Devils career may now be over.
