Man United fans in collective Facundo Pellistri call after Athletic Club clash

Supporters of Premier League giants Manchester United have taken to social media in their droves on Sunday evening, to lavish praise on youngster Facundo Pellistri.

This, for those who may have missed it, comes after the Uruguayan impressed once more in pre-season.

When all was said and done at the Aviva Stadium, United battled their way to a 1-1 stalemate, courtesy of a last-minute equaliser.

In turn, calls have mounted on Sunday evening for Pellistri to be afforded an extended chance to prove his worth, by way of a spot in Erik ten Hag’s first-team squad for the season ahead.
