Manchester United midfielder Fred has come to terms with the pressure which builds on the Premier League club, but is eager to focus on international commitment.
Jose Mourinho is current feeling the heat at Old Trafford after a slow start of the league season with his side sitting 7 points behind group leaders in eight positions.
The Red Devils recently ended their four game winless streak with a dramatic comeback in the 3-2 triumph over Newcastle at the Old Trafford.
Fred, who is currently on international assignment with Brazil national team, said that its expected considering the big name the Old Trafford outfit pulls in the media.
“Manchester United is a huge team, so, if results are not coming, people and the press will wonder why, for sure,” he said on Tuesday.
“They’ll think something is wrong, so that’s normal, that’s a pressure you have anywhere, in a company, if results don’t show up.
“And Man United is not different, with such the quality and importance they have. Of course, it’s always good to wear the national squad shirt and in the meantime, when we’re here, we try to forget a bit about there and try to focus only on here.”
Fred arrived from Shakter Donetsk last summer but is yet to cement his place with the club. This is believed to be due to quality of Nemanja Matic, but the Brazilian insist that he is adapting
“I’m very happy in this new life I’m having, at this new club, adapting. That’s a bit different for me but very nice,” Fred said.
“They help me a lot to adapt and in everything, to learn English. This is very important for me.
“The championship is very different from the one I was playing before, so I’m trying to adapt as fast as I can, watch the players when they’re training, the way they work, the positions they have.
“I guess this makes it easier for me to get adapted. I hope to keep strong and focused to play more with Manchester.”
