Man Utd manager Rangnick: Everyone loves Fred!

Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick admits that everyone at the club loves midfielder Fred.

The Brazilian all action star got the winning goal for United against Crystal Palace.

Rangnick marked his first game as interim manager with a 1-0 success at Old Trafford on Sunday in the Premier League.

"I think everybody loves Fred. You have to love Fred," Rangnick told the club website post-game.

"I have only known him for only two days now, but he's a sunshine."

Speaking after the game, Fred said he felt blessed to have scored the matchwinner.

"With me being left footed, sometimes I try (to shoot) with my right," he told MUTV.

"Mason gave me a good ball and in that moment I just looked for the goal and it happened. I'm very blessed and so happy to score one more goal here at Old Trafford, in front of our fans."
