Manchester United midfielder Davide Petrucci was proud of his screamer for Peterborough United in their win over Leicester City.

The Italian's first-ever senior goal levelled the scores and was the catalyst for a vital victory, obtained without the injured Scott Wootton.

The 21-year-old impressed throughout and told the Peterborough Evening Telegraph: "I have started slowly here. My first two matches were no so good, but the Championship was different to anything I had experienced before and it was a case of getting up to pace.

"But I have worked hard on my game and my fitness and today I felt more at home. I enjoyed the game. And the goal? Well that was one of the best feelings I have ever experienced in my life."
