Fred relishing Pogba and Fernandes link-up

Manchester United midfielder Fred says he is relishing playing alongside both Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba in midfield.

Fernandes has been a revelation since joining in January, while Pogba has beennursing an injury for most of the season.

The trio have yet to play together, but Fred told Sport Witness that he is looking forward to a time when they can combine.

“Bruno fit the team very well and Paul is a very high quality guy, as everyone knows. I believe that we can fulfil a good role by playing together.

“But we cannot fail to talk about other players who add to the position. I believe that the more options we have, the stronger we will be.

“We have a lot of academy players with a lot of quality. Mason [Greenwood] has been playing, but the one that surprised me the most and whose style I like the most is James Garner.”

Fred also sung the praises of United captain Harry Maguire, who joined the club from Leicester City last summer.

“He’s a winning player with a consolidated history in English football. He’s also an exemplary teammate, things happened with great respect and naturalness.”
