Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has urged young winger Facundo Pellistri to grab his unexpected first team opportunity at Manchester United.

“Of course he can make it, but you have to deserve it. You have to gather it by yourself,” explained ten Hag about Pellistri’s prospects.

“We will help him. The way of play, the culture, will help him. The coaches are working hard with him but at the end of the day the players have to grab their chances. They have to deserve their chances by performing every day, on and off the pitch.

“Manchester United is not a place where we can have the patience to try one for 10 games. No, you have to perform.”
