Forlan urges Man Utd patience for Pellistri

Former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan has urged patience with Facundo Pellistri.

The Uruguay winger is currently on-loan with Alaves.

"I think he's adapting really well," Forlan told club media. "When they [United] talked to me about him, I told them everything – he has great potential as a player, good skills, is quick but still young.

"You know it's not easy to arrive at a great club like Manchester United. I think being on loan at Alaves was good and now he had an opportunity to go back again. It's a good opportunity for him, he's still growing a little bit.

"In the future, he can have the opportunity to play for the first team at Manchester United."
