During the recent international break, Manchester United fans have expressed a collective message to Erik ten Hag, advocating for the increased involvement of Uruguayan winger Facundo Pellistri in the squad.
This break comes as a timely respite for Ten Hag, given the team’s lackluster start to the season.
Despite holding the sixth position in the Premier League, the Red Devils faced a setback with a 3-0 Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Newcastle United. Additionally, their Champions League journey is hanging by a thread following a recent defeat to FC Copenhagen.
Amidst these challenges, United has found success in the Premier League, securing four wins in their last five matches. Notably, the performances of 21-year-old Facundo Pellistri for Uruguay during the international break have captured the attention of United supporters.
Pellistri, earning a notable 8.2 rating, contributed with an assist in Uruguay’s 3-0 victory over Bolivia. His commendable displays against Argentina and Brazil in previous matches have further fueled fan enthusiasm.
United supporters are now urging Ten Hag to provide Pellistri with more opportunities at Old Trafford. On social media, fans have emphasized Pellistri’s potential, with one expressing, “Facundo Pellistri for Uruguay is a different hit.
We have a massive gem here. If only he could play more at United.” Another tweet insisted, “Pellistri has cooked for Uruguay during the international break. It’s time he’s given a proper run of games on the right wing.”
Calls for Pellistri’s inclusion in the starting lineup have resonated among fans, recognizing him as a standout young player for Manchester United with the potential to become a regular starter.
As United gears up for their upcoming Premier League clash against Everton at Goodison Park, fans are hopeful to witness increased involvement of Pellistri in the squad.
