“It’s a little weird,” Fred told TNT Sports Brazil, according to the Daily Mail.
“I understand that in football, it’s critical to get good results as soon as possible, but it’s also critical to have a long-term plan.” I think it’s unfortunate that we don’t have one.”
Whether Fred is correct or incorrect, questioning the appointment of a manager while he is still in control is playing with fire.
The Brazilian isn’t a regular starter and isn’t performing very well, so he’s taking a big risk by saying these things.
Fred understandably wants a long-term vision for the club, knowing who will be in charge next season and where the club is going.
Fred was speaking before Manchester United’s Champions League match against Atletico Madrid, in which the Red Devils want to preserve their season by advancing to the next round.
With the Premier League championship receding into the distance and Ralf Rangnick’s side having been ousted from all domestic cup competitions, this is the only trophy left to Ralf Rangnick’s side.
If United is knocked out in two legs and failed to qualify for the Champions League at the conclusion of the season, you can expect Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba to be on their way out.
