​Man Utd midfielder Pereira would struggle to start for Club Brugge - Houwaart

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira would have a hard time getting into the Club Brugge team.

That is according to a former manager of the Belgian club, Henk Houwaart.

He was speaking ahead of the second leg round of 32 clash between the two sides, which United won 4-0 to advance into the last 16.

Pereira was not involved in the game.

Houwaart said to HLN ahead of the match: "It is just a pity that this is not the Manchester United of yesteryear, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Giggs.

"Like Pereira, that boy would have to fight to be in the starting line-up of Club Brugge."
