Manchester United midfielder Fred credits Michael Carrick for his personal improvement but insists the whole team was on the rise prior to COVID.

However, the midfielder insists that the entire club has been on the rise prior to the COVID-19 shutdown.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk player credits his manager, new signing Bruno Fernandes, and the entire team for the improvement in form.

Speaking to Trivela he insists they were playing like potential Europa League champions.

He said:

“We were doing very well in the Premier League, very well in the Europa League. We would have a chance to be champions of the Europa League before the stop.”

“Our group got together a lot at the end, we started helping each other, with a different view of the game, and we grew up on the pitch.”

“We must also give credit to Ole and our entire group because we were on a very, very good rise.”

“Bruno Fernandes arrived and gave an ‘up’ in our squad.”

“He is an inspiration to be followed. I’m sure he will still grow a lot within United.”

Fred credits assistant coach and club legend Michael Carrick for helping him to personally adapt.

He added:

“Michael Carrick is an assistant coach who helped me a lot in this process of adaptation and transition.”

“On a daily basis, he always helps me a lot, he is always talking to me.”

“After training, we always do a little work to complement it. Sometimes finishing, sometimes passing, launching. 

“He’s a guy who has huge importance for me at United, and I’m very grateful to him.”
