Manchester United midfielder Fred has been enjoying a holiday in Croatia.
Fred flew out last week after being denied the opportunity to travel to ‘red-list’ Brazil.
Croatia is a ‘green-list’ country, meaning there are no travel restrictions or quarantine requirements going to and from the UK.
He seems to be enjoying himself. Fred posted a video on social media attempting a dive into the sea.
Except as you can see from the image below, it doesn’t exactly go according to plan…
Due back with his teammates
Fred will be expected back in Manchester possibly even as soon as today (Monday).
With Scott McTominay out injured still, Fred is a near-certain starter when United face Newcastle at the weekend.
Keeping him fresh, physically and mentally, is in United’s interests and it is certainly better to have him enjoy a holiday rather than travel to Brazil to take part in their World Cup qualifiers.
To say Fred divides opinion among United fans is fair. He is viewed by many as a weak link in midfield, while others appreciate the off-ball work he contributes to the team.
One thing which can’t be disputed is that his diving needs plenty of work…
