Fred Earns Plaudits of United Teammates
Manchester United midfielder Fred made his full debut for the club during Friday night’s 2-1 win over Leicester City in the Premier League curtain raiser at Old Trafford. The Brazilian’s performance drew the praise of his United teammates.
Alex Sanchez told the United website, “I think he has a direct style of play – he goes forward,” the Chilean stated. “It is very important for the group, for all of us, to get to know him better.
“He has been with us for a short time, but you can already see that he is a player who wants to win, who wants to achieve things. He went to the World Cup and he is going to be an important addition to the team.”
Meanwhile, Paul Pogba joined in with the plaudits, “Fred came in and, for his first game, did great. It's his first game and you know you have to adapt. It's not easy. He's done a great job in the win.”
Fellow midfielder and compatriot Andreas Perreira was equally impressed. “Fred is a very good player and I am very happy for him. He played very well and I am happy we won.”
