Rio Ferdinand Says What Everyone Is Thinking About Fred After 'Disasterclass' Against Wolves

Well, it's fair to say that was a first-half to forget for Fred. And Rio Ferdinand let him know about it.

The Brazilian midfielder, who was singled out by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his poor performance at Southampton last weekend, was once again tormented in the club's Premier League clash against Wolves on Sunday afternoon.

In fact, he was dribbled past four times in the opening 15 minutes against Bruno Lage's side, who looked dangerous going forward in large spells, with lightning-quick counter attacks causing Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire serious problems.

It was a tough half for the Reds and that man Fred was criticised by many fans on social media, including former United centre-back Rio Ferdinand, who demanded the Brazilian "wake up" after just eight minutes played at Molineux.

He wasn't the only person to voice an opinion on Fred.

Back in October, Troy Deeney ripped into United midfielder Fred and claimed the Brazilian has to take three or four touches when on the ball.

The Watford captain explained on talkSPORT: "Whenever you play against Fred - we certainly did it - you let him get it because he has to take three or four touches.

"He doesn't know how to do one or two touches. "Anyone that watches his game, he gets it facing the wrong way, turns, turns, chops, chops and he'll give you the ball three or four times a game."

Former Premier League striker Darren Bent was also on-air and quipped: "Hope Fred's not listening. Blueprint how to play against him."

Deeney hit back and admitted: "It's the truth. If you're anyone who studies football you'll know that, when teams are setting and they're waiting, you go and that one person is the trigger.

"You're waiting for it to go and then you bounce off him."
