Andreas Pereira hopes to live Santos dream
Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira says he hopes to fulfil his childhood ambition of playing for Santos one day.
Andreas grew up supporting the São Paulo state club and says he still dreams of playing for them one day.
In an interview with Esporte Interativo, Andreas said, “My entire family is Santista. Since I was little, my father always bought me a Santos shirts. I always liked Santos.
“Then I started watching, it was the time, when I was very young, it was Robinho, Diego. Then I got the season that Neymar, Ganso and Elano played, I saw them all playing, that’s when I fell in love with Santos.
“The day I wear the shirt… I don’t know. I think I’ll cry. Because I always said to my father, ‘I want to be a footballer’. I used to play for PSV. I was like, ‘If I play for PSV, it’s good.
“My dream is to play here. I love PSV as the club too and then play for Santos. My father said: ‘To play for Santos you have to be very good.
Because Pelé played there, Robinho played, Neymar played… they have many great players. You have to be a top player’.
“So I think that the day I arrive at Santos, I think it will be an immense pride. I think I’ll cry. That day I’ll cry.”
