Facundo Pellistri has a ‘future’ at Manchester United, promises Erik ten Hag
Facundo Pellistri has a ‘future’ at Manchester United, insists Erik ten Hag – as the Dutchman says he is ‘really happy’ with the winger, who is finally making his debut with the Red Devils TWO YEARS after being signed
- Facuno Pellistri made his Manchester United debut against Charlton on Tuesday
- The 21-year-old was signed from Penarol in October 2020 but has had to wait
- Pellistri came on in the 84th minute and set up Marcus Rashford
They say good things come to those who wait and Erik ten Hag believes that certainly applies to Facundo Pellistri after an impressive game for Manchester United on Tuesday night.
Pellistri eventually made his debut with the Red Devils – two years and three months after his move – and shone as a substitute in a 3-0 win over Charlton in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.
The 21-year-old came on as a substitute in the 84th minute at Old Trafford and immediately made a name for himself – providing the assist for United’s second and Marcus Rashford’s first of the night.
Erik ten Hag spoke positively about Facundo Pellistri (pictured) after his Manchester United debut.

The Uruguay international, who represented his country at the World Cup, has had to wait for first-team action since signing from Penarol in October 2020 but may be hoping for more minutes after catching Erik ten Hag’s eye.
“I see a future in him and he’s doing really well and we have to see what’s best,” Ten Hag said after the game when asked if he would keep Pellistri beyond the January transfer window.
“He’s making progress, including against Everton (in the closed-door game). I was very happy with his performance, I was happy with his performance at the World Cup, his progress is really good.
“He came and made an impact, so that’s the next step. I say well done, better, and keep it up.’
Pellistri will be hoping to play his part when United host “loud neighbours” Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday lunchtime.
