Luis Suarez sends message to Manchester United youngster

Luis Suarez has sent a message to a Manchester United player after his World Cup exit.


The player in question is Facundo Pellistri.

Pellistri featured in all three Group H matches for Uruguay at the World Cup in Qatar, but the South American outfit failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the tournament.

The winger started the opening match against South Korea and impressed off the bench against Portugal in the penultimate match.

He was then brought him back into the starting line-up for the crucial match against Ghana on Friday, which Uruguay won 2-0.

However, that was not enough to make it into the last-16 as South Korea were able to come from behind and win 2-1 to secure second spot in the group.

After failing to make it to the last-16, United starlet Pellistri took to Instagram to express his pride at representing his country at a World Cup: “My first World Cup. It was my dream to play one and I achieved it.

“Didn’t have the ending we wanted, but that’s football. So sad we didn’t achieve more. Thank you to everyone who supported! This continues, we will come back stronger!” he wrote on social media.

Former Liverpool striker and Uruguay teammate Luis Suarez responded to Pellistri’s Instagram post, stating: “We have to keep going, Facu. You will always have a rematch. Keep on giving yourself to the maximum always.”
