The Brazilian has conceded a number of factors which meant that he failed to make a good first impression at Old Trafford Manchester United midfielder Fred has admitted that his first season at the club was “awful” as he tried to settle into Premier League life.
Manchester United midfielder Fred lifted the curtain with the Red Devils during his “wanty first season.”
In 2018 Brazil International arrived in Old Trafford in a big-money move from Shakhtar Donetsk but was struggling to land in the Premier League.
Nevertheless, under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Fred has established himself as a key player for this term and the 27-year-old has taken the time to look back on his maiden campaign.
“I think it was a very tough first season for me,” the midfielder said in quotes attributed to the Evening Standard. “There was the settling process here, but also other personal things that were happening in my life, including my son’s birth.” So I believe it was a combination of factors that made me have a bad first season. I am certainly settled right now in every way.”
“I enjoyed some good results and the opportunity to play a fantastic series of games. This was also helpful. I’m pleased with this season. I’m playing well now and hopefully I can maintain the momentum when the league comes back. I just want to give the club my best, trying to be a key part of the squad.
“I want to play the league, and hopefully everything will go that way. Hopefully we can beat this virus and every family will return to normal life. I mean, it’ll never be the same ‘normal’ as before, but hopefully we’ll resume somehow from the point where we stopped,” Fred added.
Fred played 39 times in the 2019-20 season for the Red Devils, including twice against Club Brugge in the Europa League.
