Manchester United midfielder Fred struggled to make a positive impact during his side’s 3-0 Champions League quarter-final second leg defeat to Barcelona at the Camp Nou on Tuesday, and Liverpool fans on Twitter were quick to have their say on the Brazilian’s display.
The Red Devils signed the 26-year-old in a £47m deal from Shakhtar Donetsk last summer, but he has only recently started to make an impact having visibly struggled to adapt to the English game in his first few months with the club.
While he was named on the team-sheet again by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his latest performance against the La Liga leaders was hardly one to write home about.
Barca talisman Lionel Messi nut-megged him brilliantly before curling into the far corner for the opening goal of the night in the 16th minute, and things didn’t get any better from that point.
Liverpool supporters couldn’t help but have their say via social media as two of their midfield summer additions in Fabinho and Naby Keita themselves are beginning to come good.

While one said “Fred is a walking disaster”, another said “that Fred is absolute garbage”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Fred looks more like an auto repair mechanic than a footballer.
And plays like one.
