Premier League

I Want My Dream to Be Fulfilling Against Man Utd at Old Trafford

The Argentine winger longingly watched the Premier League as a child and dreamed of playing games at the famous stadium, where some of his fellow countrymen and heroes played before him.

In an interview with the club website, the 24-year-old listed the likes of Carlos Tevez, Juan Sebastian Veron and Angel Di Maria as well as some other famous names among those who he had dreams of emulating as a youngster.

It's going to be an unbelievable feeling to go there and play at a stadium that has a lot of history,” he said.

“As a kid you always dream of playing there.

“My first memories of Manchester United were when [David] Beckham was in the team. It was an unbelievable team and then again when [Cristiano] Ronaldo joined and then some Argentines like Tevez, Veron and Di Maria.

“Both Veron and Di Maria are great players. Veron was a magnificent player with admirable technique and Di Maria is another top-class player. I try to copy from him as much as possible. He's a player I admire a lot and I'm always trying to learn from him.”

Another Watford affiliated player potentially living his childhood dream at Old Trafford this Sunday will be former striker Odion Ighalo, who will be hoping to make his home debut following his loan move to United from Shanghai Shenhua.

Pussetto has seen what Ighalo can do during his time with the Hornets and knows they will be in for a tough game should they end up playing against their erstwhile striker.

“I didn't get the chance to meet Ighalo but I remember seeing him play a few times,” said Pussetto.

“He's a great player and he's demonstrated that in the Premier League and his value at Watford and his ability and capacity as a goalscorer. Now we've got to face him. We have to be aware of everyone in the team and it's going to be a very difficult game.”

The Hornets will be aided by the return from injury of both Kiko Femenia and Ismaila Sarr, without whom the Hornets have struggled in recent weeks.

Pussetto thinks the two will give them the kick start they need and expects them to be challenging higher up come the end of the season.

“The recovery from both Sarr and Kiko is going to be very important to the team but, furthermore, I think our team isn't going to fight just to stay up,” he said.

“I think we are going to be in a much better position than we are right now at the end of the season. First, we have to find a way out of the situation we are in and find a way out as quickly as possible. We have to keep calm.”
