Facundo Pellistri reveals his Manchester United regret after joining Spanish side on loan

Manchester United forward Facundo Pellistri has revealed he would have liked more time at Manchester to make an impact in the first team.

Pellistri joined La Liga side Alaves on loan in January until the end of the season after failing to break into the first team at Manchester United.

Speaking to ESPN South America, Pellistri said: “I am very happy despite the rapid changes, faster than I imagined. I was hoping to have a little more time in Manchester.

“But on the club’s side they have organised what to do with each player. The [Alaves] coach gave me the last two games and he is giving me confidence. My team-mates too.”
