Mourinho: Fred makes Man Utd more positive

Midfielder is helping on and off the pitch as Red Devils prepare for visit of Spurs

He may have been brought to Old Trafford as a ball-winning midfielder but Fred's impact off the pitch is proving just as important for Manchester United.

Fred has completed the most passes and made the second-most interceptions for Man Utd this season. 

But for Jose Mourinho, one of the Brazilian's biggest attributes is his personality.

Fred is raising spirits as United look to bounce back from their defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion in tonight's match against Tottenham Hotspur.

"I think people already like him. People can feel his positive influence on the team and on the style of football that the team wants to play," Mourinho tells the club's official website.

"When we brought him here, we knew he could influence the dynamic because he could attract other people to follow him in the way he thinks football and the way he likes to play football.

"We are really happy. And a part of that is his character, he’s a good guy to have around, a funny guy and a guy who always has a smile on his face. He doesn’t speak good English but he speaks with everyone and understands everyone and they understand him.”
