Fred - "I am blessed"

Joining Helen Evans and Sam Homewood today for the latest episode of the UTD Podcast is midfield dynamo Fred, fresh from recently passing the landmark of 200 appearances at the heart of the Manchester United engine room. This is the most appearances from a Brazilian for the Reds and the second most from a South American, behind Antonio Valencia. Football is a high-pressure business, but the effervescent Brazilian tells us how he maintains such a positive outlook on life, always aiming to play the game with a smile on his face.

Fred talks about growing up in Belo Horizonte and how blessed he feels to be playing for Manchester United, a team that he used to watch on TV as a child. He also shares with us his fascinating experience in Ukraine, playing on the road for Shakhtar Donetsk after the abandonment of their home stadium due to the conflict in the Donbass region of Ukraine.

The midfielder tells us how his move to United happened, and which game is his favourite in the famous red shirt. The conversation also takes an unexpected turn when Fred expresses his love for superhero movies and UK tourism! The UTD Podcast really is the best way to get to know people who make the football club so special.
