Manchester United fans react to Fred’s performance against Real Madrid

Making the switch to Premier League football is never easy. No doubt new boy Fred has a big task on his hands at Manchester United.

However, our new Brazilian made the perfect start with an excellent display against Real Madrid; in what was his first start as a Red Devil.

Nobody really knew what to expect from the 25-year-old who was signed from Shakhtar Donetsk, particularly after spending the majority of the summer carrying an injury.

We were all pleasantly surprised though, and it was a display of real quality from the £52million man. He was great on the ball, calm and assured in possession and willing to take those calculated risks that are sometimes required.

His ability to drive at the heart of the opponents back four is something that United have lacked, but Fred doesn’t need telling twice to get himself involved. Despite being small in stature, his physical traits also impressed me, as he didn’t seem all too fussed about getting involved in a one-on-one battle against bigger, taller opponents.

From here, the only way is up for Fred, but the Old Trafford faithful, along with several other reds, were pleased with his first outing.
