Fred sends Ole Gunnar Solskjaer message over Manchester United form

Manchester United star Fred has sent a message to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in regards to how to get the best out of him.

The tenacious Brazilian has come under fire of late as he’s failed to fully adjust despite it being his second season at the club.

With Paul Pogba absent through injury for so long, many fans hoped Fred could step up and take United’s midfield by storm.

Unfortunately that hasn’t proven to be the case and instead he’s featured in the middle of Solskjaer’s side’s worst bit of form to date.

Fred hasn’t been absolutely poor throughout his time at Old Trafford but his good performance are sandwiched in between long spells of uninspiring form.

According to Manchester Evening News, Fred said: “Passing is one of my main objectives in the game and when I make a lot of passes I’m happy.

“Obviously I’m not happy when I miss the passes so I look to get that right. I work very hard on that.

“I’m really happy for both Scott and myself, we’ve worked hard together on this in midfield and I hope we can continue this run of form and have more good games and work very hard to help United.

“As I said we did really well tactically on Sunday which was very important.

“For me I was quite relaxed. With five playing behind me it freed me up to play the way I like to play going forward a bit more.

“I was also really happy with the way I defended. The manager told me to focus, to play well, to minimise the errors and I think I did that well and defended well.”

Fred’s best performance to date came against PSG in the historic away victory last season and that also came at a time he was protected by a deep backline.

Not only was the former Shakhtar Donetsk man incredibly aggressive with his tackling and interceptions that day but he also helped Manchester United counter-attack to devastating effect, often releasing his attacking teammates with precise through balls.

Fred’s dazzling display even had Solskjaer believing it was his breakthrough performance and perhaps that’s why no midfield reinforcements were brought in during the summer.
