Manchester United summer signing Fred has revealed his concerns under manager Jose Mourinho after six months at Old Trafford.
Since joining United, the 25-year-old has made 10 appearances in all competitions and has scored one goal which came in the Premier League against Wolverhampton.
And the Brazil international has opened up on his annoyance as he is struggling at United since his £52million move from Shakhtar Donetsk.
“I’ve played very little at United, so it’s normal for Professor Tite not to be able to evaluate me, even though I’ve worked hard with him before,” Fred said.
“Of course, I was annoyed, but I have to know how to deal with the sadness to be able to help me take a step forward.”
“The coach (Mourinho) has chosen not to put me in the team. That’s his choice.”
“I still do my job and I can’t let it affect my mindset, I cannot let that shake me. I have to be patient.”
Fred joined the Red Devils in June 2018 from Shakhtar Donetsk signing a five-year contract with the option to extend for a further year.
The Brazilian midfielder has made his United debut on 11 August during his side’s 2–1 victory over Leicester City in their first league game of the season.
