Fred Will Give Manchester United ‘Another Dimension’ Says Mourinho
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says that new signing Fred will give his midfield another dimension. The Brazilian completed a move from Shakhtar Donetsk last week.
The player, who is currently on international duty with Brazil’s World Cup squad, is seen as a long term replacement for Michael Carrick and an ideal partner for Paul Pogba.
“Fred will complement our other midfielders' qualities, which we need; his creative brain and passing vision will give us another dimension to our game.
“I am very happy he is joining our club and I believe our players know how important he can be in our team,” he told the Manchester United website.
Fred is also excited about the prospect of working with United boss Jose Mourinho, “To work with Jose Mourinho, who has won so many trophies in his time as a coach, is an opportunity not to be missed.
”I cannot wait to get started and to meet my new team-mates. I would like to thank everyone at Shakhtar Donetsk for everything they have done for me over the past five years.”
