Fred sends message

Manchester United midfielder Fred sent a message to his critics in the Brazil vs Uruguay game as he turned in a stunning performance.

Fred has had a turbulent time at United since his £53million move from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2018, with good displays often being undermined by silly mistakes and runs of poor form.

But he superbly assisted Neymar for Brazil's opener, clipping the ball over the Uruguay defence for the Paris Saint-Germain forward to control, round goalkeeper Fernando Muslera and finish from a tight angle.

Fred played 88 minutes before he made way for Edenilson in what was the 28-year-old's tenth start in the last 12 Brazil internationals he has been available for.

Fans make demand

Manchester United fans have claimed that for the club to get the best out of Fred than he must play alongside a dedicated defensive midfielder, rather than be in the role himself, after his great display for Brazil on Thursday.

As well as his excellent assist for Neymar, Fred registered a 93 per cent passing accuracy, completed 100 per cent of his dribbles, won 62 per cent of his duels and made two interceptions.

United fans have pointed out that Fred was able to play so well because he had a dedicated defensive midfielder, Liverpool's Fabinho, playing alongside him in the middle which afforded him more freedom to get forward and be adventurous on the ball.

As a result, fans have told Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he must do the same at club level if he wants to get the best out of Fred.

United win Aaron Wan-Bissaka appeal

Aaron Wan-Bissaka will be available for Manchester United's Champions League game with Atalanta next week after the club won an appeal over his two-match ban.

The right-back was sent off for United on matchday one of the Champions League, shown a straight red card for a tackle on Christopher Martins in the first half of the defeat to Young Boys.

That resulted in Wan-Bissaka being handed an initial one-match ban by UEFA, but two weeks later, on the morning of United's second Champions League game against Villarreal, the governing body said the suspension had been extended to two games due to the incident being deemed rough play.

But UEFA have now confirmed United have won that appeal, which means Wan-Bissaka has now served his suspension.
