The most special moment of Fred's United career so far
Fred has described the most special moment of his Manchester United career so far and his answer is a marker of the man he is.
The 29-year-old has now made more Reds appearances than any other Brazilian player and, rightly so, he is incredibly proud of that achievement.
Fred overtook his fellow midfielder Anderson with his outing against Arsenal and he is excited by what the future holds under Erik ten Hag, with United being the only English club still in four competitions this season.
After a great victory, time to celebrate such an expressive milestone in my career. Proud to be the Brazilian with the most games in the history of Manchester United. Thanks God! pic.twitter.com/BvjY5J0nrx— Fred Rodrigues (@Fred08oficial) January 25, 2023
“I feel tremendously proud to have achieved this milestone,” the smiling no.17 told us at Carrington on Thursday. “To become the Brazilian with the most Manchester United appearances isn't easy.
“Playing at a massive club and achieving this makes me very proud and I have to thank everybody who supported me.
“I thank the club for opening their doors to me, I thank the fans for their support. It's such an honour to achieve this here at the club.”
“I think there are many special moments here in a Manchester United shirt,” he smiled. “Unfortunately, we haven't won a trophy yet, but I'm sure that this season it will come.
“I think my first goal was my most important memory, my wife was pregnant, and I could celebrate for my son. I think it was one of my most special moments in a Manchester United shirt. There have been many moments of tremendous joy I've experienced here, I'm just very grateful for them.”
