Fluminense fitness coach Alexandre Mendes has talked about two of Flu’s star assets and discussed their physical conditions to the Brazilian press.

Newspaper Lance reported quotes from Mendes about national team striker Fred and Walter, who is on loan from Porto.

Firstly talking about Walter, who has had his physical shape questioned numerous times, Mendes said: “With regard to him (Walter).

“He is an extremely professional player. He has fulfilled all the goals proposed by the technical committee to him. He has pleased us very much (with regard to his medical tests).

“Visually, his mobility and the intensity with which he has worked with has pleased us.”

Fred has suffered from injury and fitness problems in the early parts of 2014, which is a concern with the World Cup just six months away.

Fluminense’s fitness coach however expects the national team striker to be fully fit in two or three week’s time.

He said: “He is expected to be better than he was.

“He has not done a different job compared to the other players, but logical each case is unique.

“The developments we have seen are very good and I hope that in two or three weeks he is physically much better than it is now.”
