Fred Eyeing Copa America Despite Losing Place in Brazil Squad
Brazil midfielder Fred says he is still fighting to be part of Tite’s plans for next summer’s Copa América, despite failing to make the last squad.
Fred was called up in September and October, but Tite did not select him for November friendlies against Uruguay and Cameroon.
The player admits that his difficult start to life at Manchester United has contributed to his omission, but that he still harbours ambitions of being in the Copa América squad next June.
“I did not have such a good start this season at Manchester. I played little. Unfortunately I was off the last list. But as I said, it’s about working,” he told Esportivo.
“Against Young Boys I started the game again, and I managed to make a great match. Keep working, next game I have an opportunity, to show my quality again.
“And of course, I hope he (Tite) will keep an eye on me, and I can be on the next list and at the Copa America.”
