Angel di Maria, Robin van Persie, Adnan Januzaj and Rafael! Manchester United Starlet Picks Dream Five-a-Side Team.
Young Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira believes that Angel di Maria, Robin van Persie, Adnan Januzaj and Rafael, along with himself, would form a fearsome five-a-side team.
The Belgium-born Brazilian starlet joined the Red Devils youth ranks from PSV Eindhoven in 2011, with Manchester United seeing off interest from Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool to secure his services.
That has handed Pereira first hand experience of the club’s stars and he already has his favourites.
Asked by his club’s site who he would like to turn out alongside in a dream five-a-side team, the midfielder replied: “I’d like to have Di Maria, Van Persie, Adnan and Rafael. That would be a good team!”
And Pereira revealed that Rafael especially is a fierce competitor when it comes to training, with a win at all costs mentality.
“I think it’s Rafael [who is the most competitive]. He doesn’t like to lose. He is very competitive and always wants to win. He sets a really good example and is a really good pro”, he added.
