Some Manchester United fans have taken to Twitter to slam Fred, after the midfielder put in a dismal performance against Newcastle.
The 11-cap Brazil international was making his first Premier League start of the season against the Magpies, and he really wasn’t very good at all – to say the least.
The 26-year-old picked up a yellow card in the 3rd minute, and went on to play the full 90 minutes somehow.
He recorded no key passes, had no shots on target and completed no dribbles, while there was one moment where Andreas Pereira gently passed the ball to him and Fred’s touch saw it run out of play.
Just by watching the game, the former Shakhtar Donetsk man looked lost, while also seeming scared to pass the ball forward – he was simply terrible against Steve Bruce’s side.
Let’s take a look at what the United fans on Twitter have been saying about the £47m man…
Positive from today? Tuanzebe played well again! I don’t see why were pursuing with Fred, he’s not good enough. Rather give Garner some time. Likewise with Mata, he’s been a great football but what is he bringing? Rather give Angel Gomes some time. #MUFC

#Fred is alot worse than i ever imagined… Rashford is a squad player at the very most. Mata is finished as a starter. Pereira should not be in the starting 11. We are in the biggest trouble in our recent history going back over 40 years #mufc…

Why do we waste our time with Fred and not just give Garner a go? What have we seriously got to lose??? Cant do any worse #mufc

Fred is bad. Stuck with him for a bit longer than most but yes I now concede that he is outrageously poor.
