Pereira Describes First Encounter with Sir Alex Ferguson

 

Manchester United winger Andreas Pereira said he was convinced to join Manchester
United back in 2011 after his first meeting with then manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Brazilian, currently on loan at Valencia, says that many clubs were interested in him at
the time, whilst he was at PSV Eindhoven.
But Pereira, then 15, said that he was persuaded to join United after his first meeting with
Ferguson, “Suddenly we met Ferguson,” Pereira told The Guardian.
“He said ‘hi’ in Portuguese and that was very special to me. I didn’t expect that. I thought:
‘How does he know that?’
“It was only a little detail but it made me want to go to United straight away. I wanted to sign
immediately and stay there. So, I did stay. And from then I never wanted to go anywhere
else.”
