Man Utd fans hail Fred after Europa League display against Astana

Football Writers' Association: Opening the Door to BAME Journalists

Having signed from Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer of 2018, Fred endured a difficult first season at Manchester United.

The Brazil international managed just 25 appearances across all competitions last season, and his future at the club was in doubt earlier this summer. Reports had suggested the midfielder could be set for a loan move to Turkey, but a deal failed to materialise by the end of the transfer window.

After being handed his first start of the new season against Astana in the Europa League, Fred delivered a performance that reminded the club just why they splashed the cash on him in the first place.

The 26-year-old led the team in touches (154), passes (137) and accurate long balls (11), as he dictated the game from the middle of the park.

After seeing the Brazilian’s display, United fans took to Twitter to hail the former Shakhtar star.

Many Red Devils supporters hailed him for always wanting to receive possession, and revealed they expect him to come good over the course of the season.

Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
