Fred’s Man Utd turnaround credited to member of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s staff

Fred has undergone a huge transformation at Old Trafford this season having initially struggled after joining Manchester United.

The Brazilian was one of Jose Mourinho's final signings as manager with it taking £47m to lure him from Shakhtar Donetsk.

But a lacklustre first season meant he was set for a squad role this term but Martyn Pert, one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's coaches, is thought to have been pivotal in the turnaround.

Fred didn't help himself with the Norwegian when he told media back in his native Brazil that there were "problems" under him in the dressing room.

Pert speaks Portuguese and took Fred aside to remind him about how he should act in public, reports the Times.

Since then the midfielder has been one of United's most consistent performers in the middle of the park.

He has played the majority of games under Solskjaer and been part of a Red Devils side that had gone 11 games unbeaten before football was postponed.

Fred was set to be in contention for the club's Player of the Year award, although the coronavirus pandemic has seen the season come to a halt.
