Fred 'settled' at Manchester United

Fred 'settled' at Manchester United

Manchester United midfielder Fred admits he is finally 'settled' at Old Trafford following an 'awful' first season. 

Fred signed for United from Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer of 2018 on a five-year deal. The Red Devils beat noisy neighbours in the signature of the Brazilian but he failed to live up to expectations, starting just 12 of the club's league games last season and admitted it was a tough start to life at Old Trafford. 

"I believe the first season was very difficult for me," Fred said.

"There was the process of settling down here, but also other personal things that were happening in my life, such as the birth of my son. So I believe it was a mix of reasons that made me have an awful first season. Anyway, I'm definitely settled in every aspect now."

"I've been enjoying some good performances and have had the chance to play a long run of games. That was also helpful. I'm delighted with this season. I'm now playing well and hopefully, I can keep the momentum if the league returns. I just want to give my best for this club, trying to be a key part of the team."

"We have a lot of goals for this and coming seasons - we want to win trophies. Hopefully, we can keep the momentum when football returns."

The 27-year-old has started the last 22 league games this season before football was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
