On loan Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira scored the sneakiest of sneaky free kicks for Granada this afternoon.
The Brazilian man is out on a season-long loan at the La Liga outfit, where he hopes to get the games to prove to Jose Mourinho he’s good enough for the Old Trafford first team.
He’s played 17 times for Granada so far this season, but he’s managed to get only one goal and one assist in those games – hardly United numbers.
And that lack of productivity, which seems like an issue throughout the squad, probably explains why Granada find themselves 19th in the La Liga table.
But Pereira showed some quality in his side’s clash with Espanyol this afternoon, scoring a brilliant goal courtesy of a very sneaky free kick:
Unfortunately for Pereira and Granada, this equaliser was short-lived as Espanyol took a 2-1 lead with Pablo Piatti’s strike.
United fans will be hoping the little Brazilian can find more consistency in the second half of the season and returned to Old Trafford in the summer a much better player.
