Facundo Pellistri was handed his competitive debut by Ten Hag on Tuesday night against Charlton, and he made essentially the most of his late cameo.
The 21-year-old entered the fray within the eighty fifth minute and made an fast impact, providing the assist for Marcus Rashfor’s goal to place the tie to bed.
Pellistri was previously linked with a move away from United, along with his lack of gametime prompting speculation that the Uruguay international was unlikely to get a glance in going forward.
Nevertheless, Ten Hag has stated that the forward has a future on the club. Speaking after the match, he said: “I feel Pellistri got here in, he was full of life, had a very good assist with Rashford’s ending.
“I see a future in him. You see he’s progressing. Against Everton (behind closed doors in training) I used to be blissful along with his performance, I used to be blissful with him within the World Cup. Well done, higher, keep going.”
