Manchester United’s Fred believes he’s identified the club’s biggest problem.
The Red Devils have struggled this term and currently sit seventh in the Premier League with just 35 points from 25 games.
They’ve lost more league games than they’ve won since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became the permanent manager, leading to continued speculation about his future.
But Brazilian midfielder Fred has been a bright spot.
Having been criticised for his performances last season, after his £52million arrival at Old Trafford in the summer of 2018, he has really stepped up this term.
But while he has been much-improved, he feels the team has lacked team spirit this campaign.
in his words “We are lacking a lot right now, first of all we need to figure out things on the pitch, we are lacking creativity, especially in midfield.
“We also need to improve as a group, our group lacks the ‘sticking together mentality’, we have lots of problems.
“There are a lot of discussions, every group has this sort of problem, but ours has this. Vanity is also an issue and we need to stop this and just run on the pitch. We need to stick a goal inside our minds, focus on it and go forward.
“We need to be on the same page and today some players have different objectives, there are players that just want to solve problems alone and this is wrong.”
Key injuries to Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay haven’t helped United’s cause.
But the squad has been boosted with the January arrivals of Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo.
