Fred fully supports Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in his daily managerial duties – and believes he is a good boss.
“Solskjaer is our teacher and does a good job,” the Brazil international told UOL Esporte.
“He is young and growing every day. He learned a lot and will grow as a coach and person.
“It is up to the board to decide, we do not have the power to decide on this. But he is very nice, he is an extraordinary person, he talks a lot, he has a playful side and he is always smiling.
“The day to day is great and he is very important for the team, as he was as a player in the history of the club.”
Fred’s form has won over a lot of United fans this season. And while he is happy to be highlighted as a key player the midfielder believes compliments mean nothing if the team are not performing.
“Being highlighted now is very good, but there is the other side and unfortunately the team is not [doing] as well as it could be,” he explained.
“It is part of football and we need to know how to deal with it and raise our heads, because we have a very high quality team.
“You have to be charged [to deal with pressure] because it is a gigantic team. When things don’t work out, it is logical that the fans will talk. And it’s up to us to deal with the pressure off the pitch.
“The crowd got used to seeing many titles due to the size that United has and they want those moments again. They are right and they must always want it.”
