Manchester United first-team coach Michael Carrick has said midfielder Fred deserves credit after adapting to life at Old Trafford. 

Fred was named the January Player Of The Month after fans recognized the Brazilian following his brilliant performance. And Carrick says he has been impressed by the midfielder. 

“I think he’s done great,” he said. 

“It’s not always easy, I think history tells you that. When you look through the pages of this club, when new signings have come in, sometimes it takes a little time to adapt, you know that, and it doesn’t mean they’re not good players or they don’t have real good quality in their play.”

“I think it’s just what playing for this club brings and playing in the league. The Premier League is so different to other leagues so, sometimes, it takes time to get used to it, but credit to Fred.”
