Michael Carrick has hailed the return to form of Manchester United midfielder Fred since the Brazilian became an ever-present in the side.
The 26-year-old, who struggled early on in his United career, has really stepped up since injuries robbed the Red Devils of their first-choice midfield partnership of Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay.
Fred has 31 appearances in all competitions, with 21 of those coming in the Premier League, and has excelled while others in the United side have struggled in what has been an inconsistent campaign from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.
And speaking about Fred on manutd.com, Carrick admitted: “Yeah, I think hes done great.
“Its not always easy, I think history tells you that. When you look through the pages of this club when new signings have come in, sometimes it takes a little time to adapt, you know that, and it doesnt mean theyre not good players or they dont have real good quality in their play.
“I think its just what playing for this club brings and playing in the league. The Premier League is so different to other leagues, so, sometimes, it takes time to get used to it, but credit to Fred. Hes stuck at it, hes learnt and hes been willing to put the work in and try to improve.
“Hes been fantastic for quite some time now and Im sure theres more to come, because hes that kind of boy.
“He wants to keep improving, he wants to keep learning, keep getting better and theres plenty more to improve, of course, like any player, so well keep working at it.”
United are next in action on Monday night when they head to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea.
