United fan: Why I want to apologise to Fred
In our latest episode of The Debate, Manchester United supporter John Shin issues an amusing apology to Fred and happily admits the midfielder has become a “shining light”.
At the close of the show, which debuted on Monday night, Shin makes a point of saying sorry to Fred and explains why the Brazil international has become one of his favourite players, alongside Jadon Sancho.
Watch it below…
“I want to apologise because I think Fred has proven to us that, while the quality might not be there at times, he has the fight.
“The fight is certainly there and especially when things are not going well, you just want to see players out there who are giving it their 110 per cent like Fred.
“As a fan, if sometimes we look like we're playing world-class football one minute and the next thing we are capitulating, it gets frustrating. But if there are players out there like Fred who show that heart and desire and passion, it’s good to see.
“And now with Ralf Rangnick coming in and somehow rejuvenating this renaissance of Fred, it has just been such a pleasure to see him perform alongside Jadon Sancho, who has had the pressure leave his shoulders a bit since the start of the season.
Fred's three goals and six assists
For a defensive player, Fred's attacking record is solid this season: three goals and six assists...
“Sancho looked like there was so much pressure on him to try to perform as quickly as possible. I always said Jadon just needs to get down and do his thing because the quality is there and the performances are going to come. It was just a matter of him finding that stability and consistency.
“But especially in these dark past few weeks, Fred and Jadon Sancho have been shining lights for us Manchester United fans. If Fred is watching MUTV, I would just like to say I'm sorry and I love you.”
