Lampard's right? Man Utd ace Pereira slams 2 Liverpool stars: I don't like them!

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has taken aim at two of Liverpool's title winners.

When asked in an interview to name names he produced the two Liverpool stalwarts who have just won the league title.

Pereira used the work "marrento" which is Portuguese for "cocky" or "arrogant".

"I don't really like that guy, Milner," the 24-year-old told Desimpedidos when asked for an answer.

"And to tell you the truth, I don't like that guy, the defender, Van Dijk. [He is] Marrento, man. Even the way he plays is kind of arrogant."

Pereira's comments come just days after Frank Lampard warned Liverpool not to get "too arrogant" when his Chelsea side visited Anfield.

Pereira has had some kid words to say about his compatriots though.

"David Luiz and Willian are the most 'good' guys," he said.
