ENGLAND – Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has singled out Fred for special praise, after their 5-0 win against RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and a hat-trick from Marcus Rashford ensured United kept up their 100% start in Group H.
Solskjaer made few changes to the side that drew 0-0 with Chelsea on Saturday, setting up a midfield diamond with Donny van de Beek, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba and Fred.
The tactical setup worked a treat on Julian Nagelsmann’s side, who are well known for their pressing prowess.
While Rashford will take the headlines for his 27-minute hat-trick, Solskjaer reserved special mention for Fred afterwards.
“I’m sure Fred covered every little single blade of grass on that pitch.
“It’s unbelievable how that boy just recovers for the next [game] one,” Solskjaer said.
