Solskjaer tells Manchester United player, Fred, what he has to do to play again


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Fred that he had to try his luck when he would play for Manchester United and suggested that the Brazilian could play against Crystal Palace.

Fred has not played since the FA Cup win in the third round against Reading on Jan. 5 and Solskjaer has pitched Scott McTominay ahead of the Brazilian worth £ 52 million against Liverpool this weekend.

Solskjaer also chose to send on his compatriot, Andreas Pereira, rather than sign for the summer, when Ander Herrera injured the hamstring in the 21st minute. Fred has not appeared in a Premier League match since the Boxing Day walk against Huddersfield.

The MEN reported last week that Fred has received positive feedback from United coaches, who feel that he needs more time. Solskjaer confirmed that the 25-year-old was still settling, but urged Fred to seize this opportunity when he faced Palace, where Herrera and Nemanja Matic would be away due to injury.

"Play well when he gets the chance," Solskjaer replied to the question of what Fred had to do to get a visit. "Keep on training, keep working, we have a midfielder with three players: Herrera, Pogba and Matic, and they played very well together.

"It's not like we have too many games, that's why we put them together at 3. McTominay was the obvious choice against Liverpool because he was an academic." We had five players of the Academy on the ground at one point.He knows what that means.

"Fred will have his chances – maybe tomorrow."

After spending time on the substitutes' bench, Solskjaer was known for his impact in the second half of the season, but he again compared Fred's situation to former teammate Juan Sebastian Veron. Solskjaer's teammate for two years, Veron won the Premier League title in 2003, but struggled to adapt to United's pace at a time when Sir Alex Ferguson was experimenting with a new 4-4 formation. 1-1.

Ironically, Veron began his career at United with quite impressive strength before shutting down during a second season due to an injury. Solskjaer has yet made a flattering comparison between Veron and Fred.

"You look more time than it sometimes takes to settle," added Solskjaer. "You see Seba Veron, he's one of the best players I've played with, it took him a while to settle down in England, I'm sure Fred, when he gets it, On the occasion, he will seize the opportunity. "

United's retired from the top four this weekend, Arsenal beating Southampton to return to fourth place. United, fifth in the standings, will visit Arsenal next week. Tottenham, the host of Chelsea, will host Tottenham Wednesday night. Solskjaer is expecting an entertaining climax for the final qualifying spot of the Champions League.

"It will be exciting," said Solskjaer. "We have Chelsea at home and Arsenal outside." Tottenham will play at Chelsea on Wednesday.There will be so many games that it will matter in the end, because I do not think there will be a lot of points in this match between four, five and six.

"It will not be between one, two and three either."
