Well, Manchester United fought valiantly last night with the Red Devils beating Manchester City 1-0 – though the damage was already done from the first leg.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to be immensely proud of his players this morning, they left absolutely everything out on the field and at least gave themselves a chance at progression.
It’s in these games where you separate the men from the boys; enter Fred. The Brazilian midfield maestro is slowly but surely finding his feet at the highest level and last night he was absolutely superb.
Fred has great awareness, two quick-feet, a decent passing range and an excellent motor. More than anything, it’s his sheer desire to win. Coming out on top against that City midfield isn’t easy, and our Brazilian definitely held his own.
I just hope that he continues to develop. With Bruno Fernandes coming in and eventually, we’ll get Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba back from injury. Help is coming for Fred and I’m just delighted that he’s now showing us all what he can do.
Social media was awash with Man United fans heaping praise on the 26-year-old and rightly so!
