Fred pictured arriving on international duty with Brazil

Fred has been pictured arriving on international duty with Brazil.

The midfielder missed out on the last international break after United chose not to release the club’s South American players.

No such restrictions are in place for October’s international matches.

Fred wrote on Instagram: “Here we are for another challenge may God bless this journey.”


Fred established himself in Brazil’s team during the summer’s Copa America.

He links back up with the squad for three upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

These take place against Venezuela, Colombia, and Uruguay.

Brazil currently sit top of the Conmebol World Cup qualifying table with a six point gap after eight games.

A chance to sharpen up

Fred has not played particularly well for Manchester United to start the season. In fact at times he has been a liability.

He was partly at fault for Everton’s equalising goal at the weekend which saw United drop points.

This trip away with Brazil is a chance for him to play in a different environment and try and restore some confidence.

It is an opportunity for him to sharpen up and come back to Manchester United refreshed.

That is better than him spending the next fortnight stewing on his error against Everton, and he should return to the Red Devils with his confidence restored.
