Andreas Pereira hasn’t exactly had the senior career he and his fans were hoping for.
The Brazilian had always managed to impress viewers as an academy player and showed significant promise whenever he was given a chance with the first team during off-season matches. Pereira was one of those players who fans couldn’t wait to see get integrated with the senior team.
However, the midfielder’s potential never came to fruition. The Brazilian has consistently underperformed since his promotion and has failed to impress at the highest level. This has led fans to turn on him, following almost two seasons of underwhelming performances.
There are sections of the United fanbase who despise the academy graduate and no longer support him in any shape or form. They often label the youngster as the ‘pre-season Pirlo’ due to his lack of flair in top-flight games.
Obviously, these are trolls who have no constructive criticism to offer. Every footballer has to deal with such people on all social media platforms and carry the psychological toll of it.
The young playmaker is no exception as he deals with it everyday. As recently as Wednesday, the young midfielder faced harsh comments from fans on Facebook. But this time, he responded.

A United fan, clearly upset by the Belgian-born star’s recent performances implied that he should leave Old Trafford.
But instead of hitting back with a reactionary comment, the 24-year-old calmly replied that he wishes to fight for his place in Manchester and has no intention of leaving.
Whatever opinion one may have on the former Valencia man, his mentality is appreciable.
