Neville: Fred had positive season for Man Utd

Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville says he was impressed by Fred last season.

Neville has named Fred as a potential candidate to be named Manchester United's Player of the Year.

“How many times has David De Gea won it since Sir Alex left? I'm going to go for De Gea, to be honest with you," Neville said.

"The only other two I could think of would be Fred and Ronaldo. We'd be in dire straits without Ronaldo's goals but I think, without De Gea, we'd be dead! I could say Ronaldo… Who's the favourite, is it Ronaldo? I'd go De Gea, Ronaldo, then Fred, in that order."

Bryan Robson agreed with Neville on the matter and he explained why De Gea would be a worthy winner of the award.

“I'd give David the nod. I think there were only two in the running for me – David and Cristiano. But I'd just give it to David because I think, particularly in mid-season, he was outstanding."
