Andreas Pereira explains Manchester United exit

Former Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has opened up on his Old Trafford exit.

The Brazil international will face United when Fulham take on the Reds I the FA Cup quarter-finals later this month.

Pereira left United in the summer and moved to the Cottagers after coming close to joining Flamengo permanently following a year-long loan.

Speaking to O Dia, Pereira explained how he ended up at Fulham.

“There was a phase at Flamengo that was difficult. I know what happened, I felt it first-hand. But unfortunately, in the end, when things were working out, it turned out to be too late to negotiate with Manchester United.

“They no longer wanted to negotiate with Flamengo. I understand the Flamengo part and I understand the Manchester United part, but I think the best thing for me was coming to Fulham.”
