Fred earned his first player of the month award on Saturday after enough impressive run of performances in January.

The Brazilian midfielder beat Nemanja Matic, Harry Maguire and Brandon Williams to the award which was voted for by United fans.

As sourced by manutd.com, Fred earned over half of the 100,000 votes.

Since getting a consistent run in the United side, Fred has been constant improving and played in all nine matches across January.

In Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay’s absence through injury, Fred has established himself as a first team regular and is relied on by Solskjaer as a box-to-box midfielder.

United’s midfield has looked solid, if not threatening in a creative sense with a pivot of the 26-year-old and Nemanja Matic.

We hope his relentless running and desire to retrieve the ball can now be rewarded with more goals for United with Bruno Fernandes starting just ahead of him.

United’s new signing made his debut alongside Fred in yesterday’s game against Wolves at Old Trafford, but unfortunately could not influence proceedings in a drab goalless affair.
