Watch: Fred shows incredible desire to win the ball back for Man United
While Paul Pogba’s stunning goal stole the headlines, Fred produced another impressive display in Manchester United‘s 2-1 win against Fulham.
After enduring a difficult debut season at United, the midfielder has turned things around to become an integral player for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“He’s the head, he’s our coach. Obviously, the players have a lot of quality, but he helps us a lot in our day to day,” Fred recently told Globo Esporte.
“He is a great person; he is a very young coach; he will evolve much more. It is important for us all to work with him, he helps us a lot, he is always talking.
“He always tries to be close; he was a player and knows how things are. He’s a guy that we rate a lot and trust him.”
Fred started alongside Pogba at Craven Cottage and helped United complete another comeback after Ademola Lookman’s early goal.
United had to hold on in the closing stages but the Brazil international showed incredible energy and determination before winning a free-kick near the corner flag, wasting a few precious seconds.
