Fred speaks out in United Review

Friday 23 October 2020 11:36

All-action midfielder Fred was one of the stars of Tuesday’s outstanding win over Paris Saint-Germain and in an exclusive interview with United Review for the visit of Chelsea, the Brazilian reveals how the recent defeat against Spurs sparked a positive reaction in the dressing room which was evident in last weekend’s return to form against Newcastle.

“Nobody wants to lose a game, especially at home and by that scoreline,” he told the matchday programme. “We thought a lot about it, talked a lot in the dressing room. It was really bad for us, but we knew we had to come back stronger, better, more focused, and we did that against Newcastle.

“It was a good response from the team and we were very happy to get the win at a difficult place to go.”

In the interview with United Review – which once more will be available as a digital edition, with fans all over the world able to purchase at the introductory price of 99p – Fred also reveals his ambitions for the season, with the squad growing in confidence as the campaign gets going.

“I obviously want to win every trophy, that’s an ambition shared with the club,” he said. “My personal aim is to play a lot of games, put in great performances, do my best to help the team. Not get injured, obviously. I want to have a great season and the team’s objective is to win things together.

“I’m convinced we have the quality to do this, to go far in the Champions League and the cups here in England, do well in the Premier League. We hope to compete for trophies in all competitions.”
