Flop Signing Vows To Perform Better At Manchester United

Bright Okafor



Manchester United midfielder Fred has told the Red Devils Faithfuls to expect more from him this season despite the fact that some of the Manchester United fans have termed him to be a flop after an indifferent first campaign as a Manchester United player.

Brazilian international Fred joined the Red Devils from Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk last summer.

Manchester United paid around 52 million pounds to sign him at the start of last season as they snatched him from under the noses of City rivals and Premier League champions Manchester City.

The Premier League champions were on course to signing the Brazilian international midfielder before Manchester United hijacked the transfer.

Fred has not been able to live up to his hefty price tag at Manchester United since his move to the Theatre of Dreams last year.

He’s the fifth most expensive signing in the history of Manchester United and the Brazilian has been restricted to just 15 Premier League starts since his transfer last summer.

Fred didn’t have the best of the first season at the club and he has assured Manchester United fans that there would be marked improvement this term via his latest interview granted at the end of the last league game against Liverpool at Old Trafford.

The Brazilian player has shown signs of improvement this season after starting eight games in all competitions.

He has played from the start in each of the last three games in all competitions.
