'Ronaldo has brought the sun to Manchester'
Fred has explained how Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival is already having a galvanising effect on the Manchester United squad.
The Portuguese record-breaker's return has supplied everybody with a lift and Fred joked that the forward has even brought the sunshine with him to Carrington, following a spell of warm weather in the north west of England.
It is clear that his signing has provided a great deal of good vibes and positivity on the training pitch too – as Fred explained when providing a first full interview in English to MUTV's Stewart Gardner.
“We know who Cristiano is because he likes to win. He pushes everyone, so you need to be good and you need to be at your best to be with Cristiano Ronaldo. It’s so good for us because, here, he pushes everyone and can win every game and every training [session]. It’s so important. He has a big mentality. He has a lot of titles so he has that big mentality and big goals, so it’s very important.”
“He comes and brings the sun for us, so it’s good!”
