Manchester United midfielder, Fred has pinned down the trust he has received from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the reason for his improved performances at the club.
The Brazilian also missed a number of games at the start of this season but has since impressed with recent performances most recently in the 3-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion.
In an interview with The Athletic, Fred revealed the reason for his improved performances at United, "The trust from the manager is important and I feel I have this. I just want to continue doing what I’m doing, playing well and starting the games — but I want to score, too.
"I came close [against Brighton] and hit the bar but I’ll keep working until this happens. I’m very happy, firstly because we won but also because we’re getting some rhythm and we’re doing well in the cups. But we needed to do better in the league.
"We just have to carry on fighting so that we reach the Champions League. I’m feeling better than I’ve ever felt since moving to England. All I ever wanted was to play regularly and now that I’m doing that, there’s no doubt my confidence is higher and that helps any player."
