Manchester United midfielder Facundo Pellistri is delighted with his first team breakthrough this season.
Pellistri has admitted that it was “incredible” to make his debut for United against Charlton in the Carabo Cup last month.
He told club media: “It was incredible, because I had been looking forward to that moment for a long time.
“I was the one who enjoyed being on the pitch and wearing the Manchester United shirt and luckily there were 10 minutes more or less and I could touch the ball a lot and make that assist for Rashford.
“So it was a very good moment, perfect, and it is a night I’m going to remember.
“Every time I train, every time I play a game I will remember that night because it was incredible.”
Pellistri has also insisted that he is “focused on helping the team” moving forward.
Th Uruguayan could be back in action for the side against Leicester City tomorrow.
He said: “To be in a position to make my [league] debut was incredible but what I was more focused on was helping the team in that game.
“Of course, at the end it was a draw [against Leeds].
“Not such a good result, but the way we drew was good.”
