‘Pereira Helping My Adaption At United’ Says Fred
Manchester United midfielder Fred says that teammate and compatriot Andreas Pereira is helping to smooth his adaption to life in England. Fred joined the club from Shakhtar Donetsk this summer.
Pereira spent last season on loan at Valencia, but has forced his way into the first team this season alongside Fred in the United midfield.
“There are lots of Brazilians in the Premier League but most are playing against us. Here I've got Andreas (Pereira) who is here at Manchester United, who has helped me a lot and been important to me and, obviously, Jose Mourinho speaks the same language.
"I've been adapting here with my team-mates at Manchester United and, yes, this has helped a lot." Fred is also delighted to be working alongside Jose Mourinho.
“I'm really happy to be working with Jose Mourinho he's a great person and he's always keen to communicate with the squad and help people to be communicative regarding what they're to do on the pitch," he said.
"I'm really happy to be working with him and I hope that I'll be working for him for a while to come. I've got lots of objectives in the short term, the league, the Champions League and the domestic cups.
"I want to win these competitions and in the long term i want to win lots of trophies and I want to gain recognition from the fans and I'd love to leave a mark here and I'd love to leave a legacy at Manchester United.”
