Manchester United midfielder Fred has revealed his “confidence is higher than at any time since I moved here” in an exclusive with FourFourTwo to the delight of many Red Devils. One supporter even called him a “midfield maestro.”
The Brazilian told columnist Andy Mitten “I feel like I’m fully adapted now: to this huge club, to my team-mates, to living in England. And so are my family.”
Fred added “when I first knew that United were interested in me it was the idea of winning titles which appealed. The league position not is not where we want to be, but I feel we are getting better.”
After moving to Manchester from Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk for a reported £53.1m in July 2018, the 27-year-old has featured in 63 games for the Red Devils, scoring 3 goals and creating 3 assists (Transfermarkt).
Fred has put in a series of impressive shifts for club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side this season, including an eye-catching display in the dominant 5-0 victory over Club Brugge in the Europa League, where the midfielder bagged 2 goals and provided 1 assist, earning himself an exceptional statistical rating of 9.2 in the process (SofaScore).

Fred’s game has really upped this season

Always thought Fred moves like he’s flowing through water, whereas Mctominay is more direct, Lightning. Give Fernandes the Fire and Maguire is clearly an earth bender.
Anyway, its the way he moves in flowing lines, he’s clearly a Brazilian. pic.twitter.com/So3hE0F5r5
