Facundo Pellistri has named his favourite Manchester United chant following his full debut in the 1-0 win against Real Betis in the Europa League.

The victory saw United move into the quarter-finals of the competition, where they will face Sevilla.

Pellistri earned himself his first-ever start for the club – 893 days after signing for The Reds – and impressed during the game.

This comes after some promising performances from the bench for the Uruguayan, who is now challenging for a starting spot in the line-up for the tail-end of the season.

United supporters are enjoying the impact that the 21-year-old is making in his limited appearances thus far.

Whilst there is yet to be a chant made for Pellistri from the Old Trafford faithful, the winger has explained which United chant he loves the most.

“Yes, of course. We want to win everything, as in the song that the fans sing. We want to win everything,” Pellistri told PA Media.

“That’s why we prepare and we train hard and that’s it. We want to win every game and every trophy we are in.”

‘We’ve seen it all, we’ve won the lot, we’re Man United and we’re never gonna stop’ is the song that Pellistri heard United fans roaring in Seville on Thursday evening.

“I’m still learning (English) but that one is the (song) I liked the most,” he said with a smile.

Erik ten Hag was full of praise for the youngster following the game, detailing his growing impact throughout the match.

“I think he deserved to come in,” Ten Hag said. “He had a good training performance, you see him progressing, getting stronger, good game against Leeds, against Betis.

“To start is more difficult, we have seen that, but when the game goes on he came in and got belief. You see his abilities, he had some good dribbles, good runs in behind, and some good crosses, defending, he did his job.

“So I am pretty pleased with his performance. For him, it is a step up. Now it’s up to him, to get rhythm and contribute to the team.”
