Man United flop Fred “not even close to being good enough”, says Kevin Palmer

Manchester United signed Fred for £47m last season and what have they got? A repeat of Eric Djemba-Djemba and Kleberson.

When Sir Alex Ferguson signed terrible players, he made it work. Lest we forget, Gabriel Obertan has a Premier League medal to his name. Imagine if he was around now under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – we daren’t. And that’s the problem United currently have with their squad of overpriced and overpaid “stars.”

Who is to blame for United's decline?

Last night, Michael Owen called Fred a “moderate player,” and we genuinely couldn’t agree more.

There’s just nothing about him that screams ‘worth £50m’ – nothing at all.

No goals (he’s scored just once in 31 appearances), no assists (he has just two to his name), no blistering runs up the pitch nor big tackles (he averages just 1.2 per game in all competitions). To put things into perspective, N’Golo Kante cost Chelsea £32m in 2016 and has produced 3.3 tackles so far this term.

After his performance against AZ Alkmaar on Thursday, the jury’s in on Fred and it’s not good news…
