New signing Guillermo Varela was today unveiled by the club ahead of going to Turkey to represent Uruguay at U-20s World Cup. The full back, who claimed that his pace is his best asset, is delighted to have signed.
“I’m very pleased to be a part of this club, one of the best teams in the world. I’m very happy,” he said. “This is a huge club that has won everything and I hope that continues. I was here about a month ago for roughly a fortnight. It was unbelievable to be here. It was very special for me.”
When he was here on trial it was Javier Hernandez who he spent the most time with and he helped with the language barrier.
“He was a great help because he translated everything that was being said in English into Spanish for me while I was here,” Varela added. “I also got to know most of the squad. I’m lucky because there are quite a few [Spanish speakers]. It will certainly help me settle in and maybe learn lots too.”
