Facundo Pellistri

as a rebel and told him the areas he needs to improve.

The Uruguayan, who arrived at Old Trafford on October’s Deadline Day from Penarol, was sent out to La Liga side


until the end of the campaign.

It is good for him to see regular minutes in Spain, allowing his ongoing development in Europe to be continued.

And Adrian Colombo, who worked with Pellistri as a youth coach at Penarol, has suggested what Pellistri needs to work on in Spain.

Colombo has told inews:

“The main thing with Facu is that he likes having the ball at his feet to run.

“He wants to get the ball at his feet and provoke one-on-one duels.

“Sometimes I’d say, ‘Facu, it’s better to lay it off then attack the space.’

“He needs to understand the game, when he can go past his man and when he needs to pass.”
