Fred hits out at Jose over lack of game time

Fred hits out at Jose Mourinho over lack of game time

December 2, 2018 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Brazilian midfielder has expressed his displeasure in constantly sitting on the Red Devils' bench.

Brazil and Manchester United midfielder Fred has stressed on his discontentment in being frequently overlooked by Jose Mourinho at Manchester United. The 25-year-old completed a reported £52 million ($68m) move from Shakhtar Donetsk to Manchester United in the summer.

However, a series of below par performances have barred the midfielder from consolidating a spot in the starting XI of the Red Devils. Having been handed a few starts at the beginning of the season, Fred has so far made just 10 appearances across all competitions.

With the 2019 Copa America just six months away, the ex-Shakhtar Donetsk stalwart who represented Brazil at Russia 2018 does not believe his stance at the moment can earn him a call-up.

"I've played very little at United, so it's normal for Professor Tite not to be able to evaluate me, even though I've worked hard with him before," he told reporters as per Goal.

"Of course, I was annoyed, but I have to know how to deal with the sadness to be able to help me take a step forward.

"The coach has chosen not to put me in the team. That's his choice. I still do my job and I can't let it affect my mindset, I cannot let that shake me. I have to be patient.

"It's been a bit of a difficult start for me at United because I have not been playing so much. I had a lot of games in Shakhtar, but it's a little bit different here. It's normal, of course, a process of adaptation to a different league.

"Although I've been to Europe before, now I am in a different country and I have to go through a new process of settling in. But today I see myself much better and I hope that my football will be 100 per cent soon."

Fred could be in contention when Arsenal visits Manchester United at Old Trafford in the midweek's Premier League encounter having sat out Saturday's 2-2 draw with Southampton.
