Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has revealed the delight of working under new coach Michael Carrick. The former England international retired from the game following the Premier League closer against Watford last term and he has since joined Jose Mourinho’s backroom staff, where he has been offering pieces of advice.
Speaking to reporters, Pereira spoke positively about the influence of Carrick and said that the Englishman has helped him define the strengths and weaknesses to his game, he quipped: “He gives me advice all the time, he’s very good for me and always tells me what to do and helps me in training, if I do something wrong he tells me and even if I do something good he will tell me as well. He played in that exact same position, so it’s very easy to learn off him and if he tells you something it’s so easy to pick it up because you understand it straight away. So I’m very lucky he’s there for me.”
