South American wonderkid reveals who he picks as Manchester United captain when he plays Playstation

Brazil U-23 international Andreas Pereira has revealed that he can’t resist the temptation to meddle with the Manchester United team when he’s playing on the Playstation.

The 20-year-old, who moved to Old Trafford from PSV Eindhoven in 2011, gave an interview to Goal Brazil in which he explained how he relaxes off the pitch.

Pereira confirmed that he uses his spare time visiting shopping centres, staying at home, playing on his Playstation, watching the television and playing snooker.

The youngster acknowledged that he spends a lot of time at home with his parents and friends, and proceeded to admit that he was keen on playing football games.

“I make a championship here at home and I always play with Manchester,” the youngster continued, before admitting that he couldn’t resist the temptation to always pick himself as Red Devils skipper.

“Of course I’m in the starting XI,” he continued, “and I even put the captain’s armband on myself!”

The youngster has impressed over a few sporadic appearances so far this term, taking to the field in four matches in the Premier League, two in the Europa League and a further four in the domestic cups.

While Pereira—who is in contention to represent Brazil at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro this summer—could feasibly begin to feature more regularly for the Red Devils next summer, under Louis van Gaal or anyone else who may take the reins at Old Trafford, we can’t see him nabbing the armband from Wayne Rooney any time soon!
