Manchester United and Brazil midfielder Fred understands why the pressure is building at the Premier League club, but is eager to focus on international duty.
Fred, away on international duty with Brazil, said it was understandable why there was so much focus on United.
“They’ll think something is wrong, so that’s normal, that’s a pressure you have anywhere, in a company, if results don’t show up.
“And Man United is not different, with such the quality and importance they have. Of course, it’s always good to wear the national squad shirt and in the meantime, when we’re here, we try to forget a bit about there and try to focus only on here.”
Fred arrived at United from Shakhtar Donetsk in June and has made seven appearances for his new club.
“I’m very happy in this new life I’m having, at this new club, adapting. That’s a bit different for me but very nice,” Fred said.
“The championship is very different from the one I was playing before, so I’m trying to adapt as fast as I can, watch the players when they’re training, the way they work, the positions they have.
