The players that helped us return to the Champions League: Andreas Pereira

The Belgian-Brazilian suffered an injury in January which halted his progress, having scored a goal and provided 5 assists

Andreas Pereira arrived on loan from Manchester United for his second stint in LaLiga. From the very first day he knew the demands would be higher than at Granada CF, but he had the trust of his coach, who made sure he was involved in every game from his arrival until the month of January.

At that stage of the competition he was a regular, with 5 assists and a great goal, scored against Real Betis at the Benito Villamarín which he celebrated together with Gonçalo Guedes and Gabriel Paulista in a moment that became one of the images of the LaLiga season. In the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final against FC Barcelona he suffered a serious injury that forced him out of action until the month of April.

He ended the season having participated in 23 LaLiga games and 6 in the Copa del Rey, playing 1,460 minutes, being a key part of a dressing room he called “a family”, as he said during the season: “It’s really hard and special to find a team that is so united, all as close as friends”.
