Man Utd star Fred identifies where he must improve after impressive Leipzig outing

Manchester United midfielder Fred admits he still has room for improvement.

The Brazilian received praise from manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after his performance in the 5-0 win over RB Leipzig on Wednesday.

"Very happy for that, for being important to the team," he told Esporte Interativo. "It's very important that the coach is praising. We're coming from a great game sequence. A difficult sequence and a great sequence. Fortunately, I've been playing all these games.

"Today I missed some passes there in the middle, I know I can improve a lot. But I'm happy to be important to the team, to give the blood on the pitch, to run as fast as possible. Helping the team, that's important."

"And the important thing is also that we didn't concede a goal today. One more clean sheet, so this is important for us, two games and two clean sheets, so we have to continue in this sequence. We have to think about the next game against Arsenal. A very difficult game. So we have to rest and prepare for the next game."
