Davide Petrucci has told MUTV that he hopes to use his loan to Peterborough as a platform to the first team.
Petrucci knows that Sir Alex is in constant contact, wanting to know how the youngster is getting on so hopes to make a good inpression at his new club so when he returns to Old Trafford, his path into the first team is a bit easier.
Speaking to the club’s official channel, the 21 year old said:
“I like it here.It’s a new experience for me and I’m very excited. Hopefully, I can do well here.
“It’s a great thing to have, knowing that he [Sir Alex] speaks to his son every day so you want to do as well as you can every day so he can hopefully tell him something good and I can go back there and play.
“I think 80 per cent of players do this step. Unless you’re Wayne Rooney or a player like that, you have to start in the Championship and get experience. I want to do well and hopefully go back to United and play one day for the first team.”
