Jose Mourinho opens up about summer Man United signing
Jose Mourinho says Fred is already having a positive impact at Man United this season
Jose Mourinho believes that Fred is already having a positive impact since his move to Manchester United in the summer transfer window.
The Brazilian midfielder has been settling into life at Old Trafford after having signed for the Red Devils in the summer transfer window as Mourinho moved quickly to bolster his squad ahead of the new campaign.
Fred has started both of Manchester United’s Premier League games this season but he was unable to prevent the Red Devils from slipping to a disappointing 3-2 loss to Brighton in the top flight last weekend.
Manchester United fans will be hoping to see the Brazilian midfielder establish himself as a key player at Old Trafford in the coming weeks and months.
And Red Devils boss Mourinho feels that Fred is already being welcomed well into the set-up at Old Trafford.
Speaking in an interview with MUTV, Mourinho said: “I think people already like him.
“People can already feel his positive influence on the team and on the style of football that the team wants to play.
“When we brought him here, we knew he could influence the dynamic because he could attract other people to follow him in the way he thinks football and the way he likes to play football.”
Fred will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils look to get back to winning ways in the top flight when they host Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Monday night.
Manchester United are aiming to win the Premier League for the first time since 2013 this season.
