Man Utd star Fred admits where he must improve after being singled out as weak link

Fred has detailed the key areas of his game he wishes to improve on following scathing criticism of the Manchester United midfielder.

The 28-year-old came under fire for his performance in United’s narrow 1-0 victory over Wolves at Molineux last month, in which the hosts were unlucky to come away with nothing.

Former Red Devils captain Roy Keane intimated that Fred is one of the weak links in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side as he laid into the Brazilian – not for the first time.

Keane told Sky Sports after United’s win over Wolves: ‘If you’re going to play in central midfield for a big team and a big club you got to hang your hat on something to say he’s brilliant at going forward, or he’s brilliant defensively or he’s got a goal in him, or he’s a great athlete. I don’t see any of them in Fred.’

And Fred has openly admitted that he wants to work on his passing and positioning, as well his ability to take the ball on the half-turn.

‘I aim to improve and work a lot after training on my passing,’ he told Manchester United’s website.

‘Sometimes turning in the midfield, things more specific to my position.

‘As I’ve said before, my objective is to get the ball to the forwards, to always be ready to receive the ball from the centre-backs, receive a pass and have the right body position to control it and find a good pass.

‘I aim to improve in this area, this is the most important area to improve and develop in my position.

‘I visualise this every day so I look to improve on positioning on the pitch, an additional pass, turns during a game, that’s what I look to work on every day.’

After their shock 2-1 loss to Young Boys in their opening Champions League group game on Tuesday, United will be looking to bounce back when they go away to West Ham on Sunday.
