“I am really pleased that Fred has completed his transfer to Manchester United, I am really proud of him.” “When I signed him at Shakthar, Taison and Bernard were playing in his position.” “I transformed his position, giving him a more defensive role.”Lucescu has the biggest hand in making Fred the player that he is today and certainly speaks highly of his former player. Brazil’s international team coach, Tite admitted that he wasn’t surprised by United’s interest in Fred.
“When this happens, and it is inevitable, they are going to come to us and our advice is to resolve this as soon as you can so your head is back with us and focussing on the national team.” “If I was the manager, I would ask to sign him as well.”With the addition of Fred, United have made their midfield stronger, with lights of Pogba, Matic, Mata, Herrera, and now Fred. The Brazilian is known to play as a defensive midfielder, which would make it easier for him to make play transitions from defense to offense and vice versa. Wether this transfer will be a sucess or a flop for United is yet to be seen. And how Jose Mourinho fits Fred into his gameplay would decide the future of this young talent.
