Rivaldo offers advice to under pressure Man Utd midfielder Fred

Brazilian great Rivaldo has urged Manchester United midfielder Fred to manage his temper better.

Fred was sent off in United's Champions League defeat to PSG.

Rivaldo told Betfair: "Fred's sending off arguably cost Manchester United the match against Paris Saint-Germain as the Red Devils looked capable of mounting a comeback and even going on to win.

"The Brazilian needs to learn to control his temper, especially in such a big match, and be patient.

"When you are chasing a game you might commit mistakes that will harm the team even more - as Fred did - so it's crucial to take a second, breathe in and breathe out, before going into risky challenges."
