Man Utd midfielder Fred: I know I can do better

Manchester United midfielder Fred admits he's struggling for form.

He and fellow midfielder Scott McTominay have faced fierce criticism from United legends such as Roy Keane and Paul Scholes for their displays.

However, Fred believes that is “fair" as he admitted that he has been struggling under manager Erik ten Hag.

Speaking while on international duty ahead of Brazil's friendlies with Ghana and Tunisia, he said: “I stay calm and try to do my work in the best possible way.

“Unfortunately this has not been a good start for the season. But now we have been fitting in as a team, with a better understanding of what the manager wants, and I am well aware of my value here.

“Thank God I was picked once more to play for Brazil. So I know my worth and everybody can say whatever they want, because I will not lose my focus.

“Whether I start a match or not, I will keep working hard."
