EPL: I feel sorry for Fred at Man Utd – John Barnes

News

Liverpool legend John Barnes has said that he ‘feels sorry’ for Manchester United star, Fred.

According to him, Fred cannot do all the running and pressing being required by the new manager by himself.

The Brazilian was heavily criticised under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his performances.

With Ralf Rangnick now at the helm on an interim basis, United’s forwards will be expected to run more.

“I feel sorry for Fred. Running and pressing is his game but he can’t do it by himself,” he told BonusCodeBets.

“The fact that other players were pressing with him meant that he was able to prove his worth. He [Fred] did not do anything differently, he always presses but if he does it alone, it means he gets isolated alongside Scott McTominay, and that is what was happening.

“Those two were getting isolated, which is why Manchester United have been conceding goals and losing matches. Now that everyone else was doing it, we can see the value that Fred actually brings.

“I’ve always liked Fred and he has not been the problem at Man United, it’s been the other four strikers that have been playing, whatever combination of Ronaldo, Rashford, Fernandes and Greenwood.

“It is the strikers working with Fred and McTominay that need to supplement them with attacking pressure.

“It doesn’t matter who you are, even Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, you cannot do what you do if the front three are not working hard to press and close down.

“That is why Liverpool are a much more balanced team. I have never had an issue with Fred and McTominay nor the defence because they need everyone in the team to be working hard and that is what they did against Crystal Palace.”
