- Andreas Pereira joined the Manchester United senior team in 2014
- The 24-year-old has hit out at two Liverpool players Van Dijk and James Milner
- Pereira claims both Liverpool stars are the most arrogant - and that he does not like them
Andreas Pereira has directly hit out at Liverpool’s duo of Virgil Van Dijk and James Milner saying both players are arrogant, adding that he does not like the pair.
According to the Brazilian midfielder, both Liverpool players are the most arrogant he has seen in the Premier League.
In a recent chat with Brazilian YouTube channel Desimpedidos, Pereira used the Portuguese word ‘marrento’ to describe Dutchman Van Dijk. It was gathered that the word translated to a combination of ‘mean’ and ‘arrogant’.
When asked about Milner, Pereira said: "I don't really like that guy.
"And to tell you the truth, I don't like that guy, the defender, Van Dijk. He is marrento, man. Even the way he plays is kind of arrogant."
Pereira said Arsenal's David Luiz and Chelsea's Willian were his two favourite Brazilians in the Premier League.
And this is coming barely three days that Frank Lampard and Jurgen Klopp were involved in a heated exchange during Liverpool's 5-3 victory over Chelsea.
The Blues manager was spotted on camera using a foul language at his counterpart in an incident involving players from either side.
Matteo Kovacic tackled Sadio Mane as referee Andre Marriner blew the whistle for a free-kick as Lampard and Klopp clashed on the sidelines.
The inaudible exchanges was captured on camera by Sky Sports as Lampard was left furious telling Klopp to sit down.
“No, no, I’ll stand up. Sit down you f***ing [inaudible].” Klopp did not relent as he challenged the Blues boss and Lampard did not hold anything back as he responded to the German boss again.
