Man Utd star Fred 'very grateful' to Carrick for helping him through testing 'adaptation' at Old Trafford



The Brazilian concedes his first year in England was "very difficult" but is now enjoying his football again and hoping to "improve more and more"
Manchester United midfielder Fred has expressed his gratitude towards Michael Carrick for helping him through a frustrating period of "adaptation" at Old Trafford.
Fred completed a £52 million ($64m) move to United from Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer of 2018, but struggled to live up to that hefty price tag during his first full season in England. The 27-year-old quickly fell out of favour under Jose Mourinho, and his fortunes did not improve initially under his successor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
By the end of the 2019-20 campaign, Fred was being tipped for a move away from Old Trafford, amid reported interest from a number of clubs across Europe. However, Solskjaer ultimately decided to give the Brazil international another chance to prove himself, and has been rewarded for his faith this season.
