‘Deserves the chance’ ‘He’s made for these European nights’ – Fans Back £47m United Signing To Make His Mark Tonight

It’s fair to say that things haven’t quite worked out for Fred in a Manchester United shirt so far.

Since arriving for £47m from Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer, the 25-year-old has made just seven starts, scoring one goal in the 1-1 draw against Wolves back in September.

With United facing Young Boys in the Champions League tonight, some United supporters on Twitter are calling on manager Jose Mourinho to recall the Brazilian to the starting line up:

With the lack of dynamism in United’s midfield,  a changeup in approach could well be needed when they face the Swiss champions at Old Trafford.

A win would seal a place in the last 16 if Valencia fail to beat Juventus in the other match in Group H. To get the three points, though, they will need to show more guile and craft than they managed in the 0-0 draw versus Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Will Fred get his recall after three matches on the substitutes bench? We shall have to wait and see.
