Andreas Pereira responds to fan’s criticism on Twitter

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has shown that he a fighter off the pitch as well as he replied in kind to a fan’s criticism on Twitter.

The 24-year-old has not had the best of seasons. He has scored just twice while assisting four more in 39 appearances so far this season. (h/t Transfermarkt)

His inability to make a telling contribution on the pitch has been a source of frustration to some fans. One such user took to Twitter to make his feelings known.

War!

It all started with Periera tweeting about how slow the warzone servers were. This prompted a reply from @aaokaatlosaab who make a rather telling criticism of Periera’s performances on the pitch.

This prompted the angry Brazilian to lash out and claim that nobody cares what the fan thinks.

The matter did not end there as another fan using the handle @MikeLUHGv7 popped up to further criticize the Brazilian.

Pereira rose to the bait and replied in a similar vein to the disgruntled fan.

Peace!

It was not all doom and gloom as a number of supporters stepped up to defend the midfielder. He responded kindly to the comments and that was the end of the matter.

Yes, his performances have not been up to the required standards. However, that does not give fans the right to publicly call out players.

A number of fans fail to see the distinction between constructive criticism and outright malice, of which this falls in the latter category.

Social media has given fans a platform to interact with their stars. It should not, however, be used as a medium to humiliate others.

We are pretty sure none of the fans involved would take kindly if any of their incompetence at work was called out publicly.
