Fred is yet to feature for Manchester United this term but the Brazilian has liked an Instagram comment suggesting he is better than one of his team-mates who features more regularly.
That would be Jesse Lingard, a member of the squad who is no stranger to criticism.
Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay have started the opening games in central midfield while Lingard and Mata were given opportunities in the no.10 roles.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t look like he’s going to change this tendency, though it may be part of a plan to give Fred some minutes to see if he can improve on his dreadful displays from last season.
Judging by the comment Fred recently liked on Instagram, suggesting he should start ahead of Lingard, there’s going to be competition for places after the international break.
The comment reads: ‘Fred better than Lingard’.
I know Lingard gets his fair share of criticism, but wouldn’t agree with this… even if Fred does! 😂 pic.twitter.com/ygJJL8ee6c
