‘Brazilians Are Born With A Passion for Football’ Says Fred
Manchester United midfielder Fred says that he, like most Brazilians, was born with a passion for football. Fred joined the club from Shakhtar Donetsk this summer.
Fred told the Manchester United website, “Like many people say, Brazil is the country of football – many kids there are sent to footballing schools by their parents; it’s as if they’re born with that passion to play the game.
“Brazil has so many talented players, there are some great ones coming through right now, and there are some who are already at the top of their game, like Neymar and Philippe Coutinho. I think football is in the blood of all Brazilians.”
Fred also says that representing his country gives him a special sense of pride, “It’s an honour to wear the Brazil shirt, one which so many other talented players have worn.
“I’m really happy to have been involved in a World Cup, and I hope I can carry on doing my best with Brazil, wearing the famous yellow shirt. It’s a dream come true for me, and I hope I can keep playing for Brazil for many years to come.”
