Man Utd midfielder Petrucci determined to make most of Royal Antwerp move

Manchester United midfielder Davide Petrucci is excited about his loan move to Royal Antwerp.

Petrucci will be playing for Chelsea hero Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, who is now coach of Antwerp.

"I'm looking forward to this experience," he told the club's official TV channel. "Hopefully I can do well and, together, we can do something good.

"Obviously, my coach was Warren Joyce and he spoke about Antwerp a lot so I know lots of things about it. From what he told me, it's a good team and crazy fans, in a good way, so I can't wait to start.

"I didn't know him [Hasselbaink] before I met him but everyone knows about him and it will be good to work with him. Hopefully, he can teach me something good and I can learn."
