Facundo Pellistri was the surprise deadline day signing for Manchester United and he’s been spotted sporting club gear for the first time.
The Uruguayan Pellistri followed his countryman, Edinson Cavani, to Old Trafford last week. Now, he’s ready to make his impact at the Theatre of Dreams.
Pellistri was given the number twenty-eight jersey by Manchester United, which hints that he may well have a first-team role sooner than we all think. I guess the lack of wide-depth in Manchester certainly plays into his hands.
What remains to be seen is how well Pellistri adapts to life in his new surroundings. He’ll have to make the adjustment quickly, though, if he wants to win Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s trust this term.
Well, Pellistri is already in Manchester. Now, we’ve been given a glimpse of the young man wearing Reds gear for the first time. He was snapped donning some training-wear, along with the caption ‘let’s go reds’.
The young man gives off the impression that he has the correct mentality to enjoy success at the highest level. However, a good start is absolutely vital, while it’s down to the coaches to recognise when he is ready for that first-team chance.
