Manchester United loanee Facundo Pellistri described the difference between the Red Devils and Uruguayan clubs as “Incredible”.
The promising 19-year-old midfielder arrived into Old Trafford from Uruguay club Penarol for £10million in 2020, but he has since been loaned to La Liga side Alaves.
After a decent loan spell at the Mandizorrotza stadium, he is currently enjoying a second season on loan at Javier Calleja, where he has already made seven appearances this season.
While they have all been from the bench, he has managed to impose himself well and earn the trust of Calleja, who will surely award his efforts with a starting place soon.
However, Pellistri opened up on Manchester United’s first gesture they made after he signed for the club in 2020.
“The club gave me a house filled with enough food for two months,” the young midfielder said to the Athletic.
“The difference between United and a club in Uruguay was incredible.
“There were so many people to help look after us. If we had any problem, I just had to call.”

Old Trafford is known as the Theatre of Dreams, and by Pellistri’s recollection it more than lives up to its title.
United have a vast, dedicated team of people reserved for player liaison and welfare, particularly for players who come from a completely different culture.
And Pellistri also offered a glimpse into the five star treatment players receive once they are signed by the legendary reds.

“If I wanted a new phone — no problem. They would get one for me,” said Pellistri.
“I didn’t really want many things.
“I didn’t even ask for maté (a traditional South American drink made from holly leaves) because I don’t really drink it.”
The youngster is yet to make a senior appearance for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, but he does have 19 La Liga appearances under his belt.
