Man Utd Star: I Want To Play, I'm Not a Boy Anymore

A Manchester United star has sent manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a message that he is "not a boy anymore" and wants more game time at Old Trafford this season.

Andreas Pereira has failed to stake a claim in United's starting XI over the years, and has been loaned out to the likes of Granada, Valencia and Lazio in the past few seasons.

The Brazilian has featured prominently in United's pre-season fixtures, though, while the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay were on holiday.

The 25-year-old has now insisted he is now looking to get some regular minutes in his preferred position for the Red Devils in the coming season.

"I'm ready to play, I'm not a boy anymore. I'm a man ready to take responsibility," Pereira told TNT Sports.

"I'm sure that with playing time and continuity as a starter in my position, I can show what I've done on base, I can score more goals and give assists.

"A player of my position needs the confidence to play and the freedom to be bold on the field.

"I've always worked for the team. With him (Solskjaer) I've played everywhere on the field and I've always done my best."
