‘I don’t really like that guy, Milner… or Van Dijk – he is arrogant’: Manchester United’s Andreas Pereira names Liverpool pair when he is asked about his most ‘cocky’ opponents

  • Andreas Pereira called both Virgil van Dijk and James Milner arrogant and cocky
  • The Manchester United midfielder said he didn’t like both the Liverpool players
  • Pereira also admitted that David Luiz and Willian are nicest players he’s faced

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has claimed that Virgil van Dijk and James Milner are the most arrogant players he has come across in the Premier League.

The 24-year-old Brazil international called out the Liverpool duo on the Desimpedidos YouTube channel when asked about his most ‘cocky’ opponents.

He referred to van Dijk and Milner – who both play for United’s arch-rivals Liverpool – as ‘marrento’s’ in Portuguese, which translates to ‘cocky’ or arrogant.’

‘I don’t really like that guy, Milner,’ Pereira told Desimpedidos.

‘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.’ 

It comes just days after Chelsea boss Frank Lampard warned Liverpool not to get ‘too arrogant’ following a confrontation with Jurgen Klopp during his side’s 5-3 defeat at Anfield.

United star Pereira went on to name his fellow countrymen David Luiz and Willian as his favourite opponents to come up against.

‘David Luiz and Willian are the most “good” guys,’ he said before adding that it is always enjoyable to speak to them before stepping out on to the pitch to take them on.

The United midfielder also named Thiago Silva, Marquinhos and Sergio Ramos as his top rated players.  

Pereira did, however, say that fellow countryman David Luiz was one of the nicest players
