Here’s what an angry Ivan Rakitic allegedly shouted at Manchester United youngster

Classy, Ivan. Really classy...


Big things are expected of Manchester United youngster, Andreas Pereira.

The 21-year-old, who has only made a few appearances for United’s first team, has spent this season on loan in La Liga with Granada but is anticipated to feature in Jose Mourinho’s plans in 2017/18.

The Brazilian has scored four times during his stint in Spain, his performances becoming more and more consistent throughout the season.

Over the weekend, Pereira and his Granada teammates faced Barcelona. Goals from Luis Suarez, Francisco Alcacer, Ivan Rakitic and Neymar sealed a 4-1 victory for the Spanish champions, a result that doesn’t help Granada’s chances of beating relegation from La Liga.

Rakitic took it upon himself to remind Pereira of this following an incident with him during the second half.

Unhappy at a challenge from the Croatian, Pereira responded by shoving Rakitic in the chest. After receiving a yellow card from the referee, Raktitc can be seen shouting in the direction of Pereira. According to AS, he says: “Son of a bitch! To the second division with you, you’re getting relegated!”

Classy, Ivan. Really classy.

Granada sit 19th in La Liga following the game, just eight points above bottom place Osasuna. The win for Barca leaves them in second, two points behind Real Madrid despite playing a game more than their great rivals.
