No offence to your side but I hoped we'd be able to get him a better clubRecord is posting today that Joel is going on loan to my club, also Mourinho's club, Vitória de Setúbal.
I think it will be great for both, since he is going have lots of work and I really doubt he will not be the top goalkeeper.
Good opportunity to grow
No offence taken, don't worry. "Better" club can be dangerous because he can still sit on the bench but just on a diferent place. This is a good opportunity for him to play all season and growNo offence to your side but I hoped we'd be able to get him a better club
The distance between the city of Manchester in the United Kingdom and the city of Setúbal is approximately 2,533 kilometers, nothing that would make Joel Pereira think that it was in any way preventing him from returning to Portuguese football by the hand of, as he says, one of the most emblematic and historical Portuguese clubs.
"I'm very happy to be here. I've been to I Liga and it was a great experience, unfortunately it lasted little, only ten games. But now I want to stay the whole time in a historic club like Vitória. I hope to be very happy in this emblematic Portuguese football club that any player is proud to represent, "he said in exclusive statements to the Vitória FC website.
For this son of emigrants, born in Switzerland, but with dual nationality, which allowed him to represent the national teams in the training classes, Sub-21, including, return to Portugal to represent Vitória de Setúbal, the birthplace of José Mourinho, his coach at Manchester United, has a special flavor. It's a way of being closer to yours.
"I was born in Switzerland and at home we always spoke Portuguese. Every year the family makes a point of coming to Portugal. Now in football I am like an emigrant and coming to play for Portugal is a way to be closer to my roots. Before coming here I talked a lot with Mr. Mourinho, with his assistant, Ricardo Formosinho and also with Silvino Louro, the coach of goalkeepers who are also from Setúbal and represented at the highest level Vitória. Their opinion was very important to me because they know the club and the people who work here. We all thought it could be an important step for my growth as a player. Mourinho told me he was going to a big club, where he would be very happy and here I am, ready to work and help Victory to make a success, "he said.
There are no similarities between the English League and the Portuguese League. They are different realities, different cultures, but the language of football, this is the same anywhere in the world. That's why Joel sees his entry into Vitoria FC as an opportunity to return to Manchester United even more confident and more experienced so that he can discuss a place in the Red Devils' eleven in the future.
"Football in England is another very different reality from ours, but sometimes it is necessary to take a step back and then take two steps forward and achieve success. That was the reason that led me to accept this challenge. I only see good points in my experience in Vitória. And I'm here to give the best of me. Right now Vitória is the best for my career and I'm here to fight for my place. They are different realities but I will feel good. In England the passion with which people will see football is significant. Manchester is one of the biggest clubs in the world, there is a lot of pressure on players and we have to be prepared for those challenges, "he said.
Joel barely had time to pack his bags and get to know the corners of the house, which is, as it were, the Bonfim Stadium. He debuted with Extremadura in the game of presentation to the members and two days later he participated in the training game with Benfica in Seixal. Now he promises to work to find his space in the team.
"I almost did not sleep after a long trip but I did not want to miss the presentation game. I did not even think twice. I felt a special affection when they announced my name and I thank the Victory fans for this gesture that made me feel. Now it's my turn to reciprocate. "
It's kind of easy to think about it. Vitoria already has a first team goalkeeper. You cant get a new one and replace the old one just because you get a new one. You need the right circustances to do so not to break the first goalkeeper morale.If you loan out a goalkeeper then you should have the "assurance" that he plays (unless of course he's awful in games and/or training).
I mean why should Vitoria de Setubal loan out a young goalkeeper from Manchester United if he's just their No.2 goalkeeper
He is doing good and he is really secure at the moment.Clean-sheet for him yesterday
To be fair, i couldn't really follow the full game cause i was out of town. He looked tight in the first half, that's what i really saw. I also liked him vs Guimarães. Probably the pressure of the "big" game against Porto was on his shoulders and that's why he failed more in that game.Just here to point he looked ok today but @Bruno Marques probably followed closely the game. This guy needs to consolidate at a club be in Portugal or another league because when you have someone like De Gea your best bet is to be his number 2. He isn't special but could develop more instead rotating between the bench or sucessive loans imo.
Yes he needs to play at the same club for more than 1 season imo. We don't have great keepers in Portugal.To be fair, i couldn't really follow the full game cause i was out of town.

He needs more time playing so he can grow up
Joel signed a 4 year deal + 1 year option in the summer of 2017. So he is contracted until summer 2021. There are numerous articles online giving details. Here is one:Another poor loan
He will be a free agent in the summer therefore it will be interesting what the club will do with him in the next weeks.
It's a weird one because when he went on loan to Belenenses (also in the Portugese league) he was one of their best players during his time there and sparked interest from Benfica to replace Ederson. Strange how 2 seasons later he goes to play in the same league and does poorly.
Oh thanks.....looks like i was on Andreas Pereira's page on transfermarkt.deJoel signed a 4 year deal + 1 year option in the summer of 2017. So he is contracted until summer 2021. There are numerous articles online giving details. Here is one:
