Manchester United midfielder Fred is confident his club can win the Champions League next season despite not yet qualifying for the competition.
United need to secure a single point against Leicester City this Sunday in order to secure Champions League spot next season. In the last four seasons, the Red Devils have only qualified for the Champions League twice, with the Old Trafford club having to settle for competing in the Europa League this campaign.
"As a club, we should be in the Champions League every year as we’re a massive club," the midfielder told the club's official website.
"So to be back in the Champions League is really important for us players, it’s also important for the club. It’s what the players and the club deserve. It will be great to be back in the Champions League next season and we will look to win."
The Brazilian also commented on United's captain Harry Maguire, who is set to face his former club Leicester at the King Power Stadium.
"It must be a great feeling for him [Maguire] because he’ll be going back to see his old team-mates. He was there for a long time, so he must have some strong friendships there and so it must be a good feeling," he pointed out.
"But today he’s representing Manchester United and, as we’ve said, he will be doing his everything to avoid us conceding and come away with the win."
