Andreas Pereira names Liverpool pair as most arrogant opponents. “I don’t really like that guy. Even the way he plays is kind of arrogant.”
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 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.
