Fred is ready to fight for his Manchester United future after the sacking of Jose Mourinho, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the Brazil international has set his sights on impressing interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following his appointment last week.

Fred joined Manchester United in a big-money deal in the summer but the Brazilian has struggled to hold down a regular spot in the first team for the Red Devils.

Mourinho was eventually sacked by Manchester United on Tuesday in the wake of their 3-1 defeat by Liverpool FC at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

According to the same story, Fred is now determined to “fight” for his future at Manchester United as he looks to try and help the Red Devils bounce back from their worst start to a season in 28 years.

Fred has found his first-team opportunities at Old Trafford to be limited in recent weeks.

Indeed, the midfielder has only made a total of eight Premier League appearances for the Red Devils, scoring one goal in 502 minutes in the top flight.

He will be hoping to be involved when Manchester United travel to Cardiff City in the Premier League this weekend.
