Andreas Pereira played for the first time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a match against Burnley, which ended in a 2-2 draw.
The first match Ole Gunnar Solskjaer drew as a Manchester United manager came after winning his first eight consecutive games.
The game was against Burnley and ended up in a 2-2 draw.
But for player Andres Pereira the chance to start for the first time under his new manager ended up being a nightmare.
“I didn’t think about it too much during the game but then I got subbed after and I got down about it,” Pereira told Four Four Two.
“I was angry; I didn’t speak with anybody for a week.”
He continued: “I started to look at myself, started to pick myself up, then I started to feel better and I got over it. I know that I had to overcome my mistake.”
“Ole told me to calm down, to trust myself.”
“It was a difficult time for me, but after that I was ok,” the footballer said.
“Last season I had some difficulties to overcome mentally.”
“I was doing well, then I had a setback where I was out of the team. Then Ole gave me a chance, he spoke to me and explained that I was in his plans,” Pereira concluded.
