Fred on Fluminense: It is the most important team of my career
Brasileirão top-scorer Fred believes that Fluminense are the most important club of his career and has said that he will remember 2012 for the year he became closer to the Rio de Janeiro club.
Fred, 29, has had a stellar 2012, with not only scoring 30 goals in 45 games and winning the Brazilian league title, but was also earned a recall to the Seleção.
“Fluminense is today the most important of my career,” he told Globo Esporte.
“To be here is to be different. Besides the titles and honours, I also speak of the things that happened to me professionally. I am living the best moment of my career.”
The former Lyon striker also reached the landmark figure of 100 goals for Fluminense this season and, with the player settled at the club and loving life in Rio, Fred can see himself playing for Flu for a lot longer yet.
“I imagine that's what will happen. This is the design for my future. I think I can play at a high level until 34, 35 years.
“Even more so with the project that Fluminense have today, everything is very well organised. But this will also depend on other factors too.”
