Man Utd winger Pellistri stands by Alaves decision

Manchester United winger Facundo Pellistri has no regrets over his loan move to Alaves.

Pellistri has suggested that Jadon Sancho's arrival at Old Trafford made him decide to head out on loan.

Speaking to The Athletic about his pre-season with United, Pellestri said: "I felt stronger in the first team, I scored in a game at Derby for the first team.

"It was a very hard pre-season, the hardest I've ever had. Physically, you are really pushed, the training is such a high level.

"New players came in, including in my position [Sancho] so I thought it was a good idea to go on loan again.

"The best thing for a player is to play, and for a young player, to get experience."
