Six weeks after playing his last minutes for Manchester United, Fred is set to be handed another chance by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Wednesday against Crystal Palace.
With the Red Devils plagued by injuries, Solskjaer hinted Fred’s exile could be about to come to an end with the midfielder making just seven Premier League starts so far this season.
The Brazilian joined United over the summer from Shakhtar Donetsk with Solskjaer confident he can impress once he fully adapts to his new environment.
“You have to look at the time it needs to settle,” Solskjaer said.
“You look at Juan [Sebastian Veron] – he is one of the best players that I played with – and it took him time to settle. And I am sure that when given the chance and a run in the team Fred will grab the opportunity.

…As Oborevwori Congratulates Afe Over His Victory
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) House of Representatives candidate for Uvwie, Okpe /Sapele Federal Constituency, Hon Efe Afe has defeated former Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Delta Speaker, Rt Hon Monday Igbuya.
Hon Efe Afe scored 36, 804 votes while Hon Igbuya polled 26, 971 votes.
Hon. Efe Afe, former member of the Delta State House of Assembly contested under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party,PDP where he floored the All Progressives Congress Candidate.
Hon. Afe was joined by the current Speaker of the House, Rt.Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori as he received a copy of the election results from Officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC at Adane-Okpe Primary School in Orerokpe Community, Okpe Local Government Area of Delta State.
Addressing newsmen shortly after receiving the results, Hon. Efe Afe said,”This is one of my greatest day after yearning for the position for the past eight years .But I want all my opponents to know that there is no Victor , no vanquished”.
While thanking God for the victory, Hon. Afe said his party, popularity and love for Governor Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa gave him the victory.
Hon. Afe commended INEC conducting one of the best elections in Nigeria and enjoined his supporters to celebrate his victory and continue to believe in the PDP Government in Delta State.
The Speaker of the Delta State, Rt.Hon.Sheriff Oborevwori expressed happiness over the results.
Rt. Hon. Oborevwori said,”Well, we are happy . The Okpe, Uvwie and Sapele Federal Constituency has made a clear statement with this victory in this Constituency. We are happy and the people are happy.”
The lawmaker also appreciated the Delta State Governor, Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa for all he has been doing for the people in Okpe Kingdom, saying that; ” And so come Saturday, March 9, 2019, we are going to do it again”.
Rt.Hon. Oborevwori said he did not have any fears on the elections just as he noted the challenges faced by many electorate on Saturday, February 23,2019 with the card readers.
The Speaker urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to adhere strictly to the usage of the card reader so as to checkmate electoral malpractices.
He also said the election was free and fair in Okpe Local Government Area apart from Sapele where there was reported violence leading to the death of two persons with two others injured.
We have just read with great consternation the Press Statement of the National Chairman of PDP rejecting the results as being announced presently by INEC in Abuja.
The simple questions we ask the PDP and Atiku’s Campaign team are as follows:
(1) How come the PDP is rejecting results that have not been fully and completely announced? How can one reject the result of an uncompleted game? The process of an election does not end until the final collation and announcement of results.
(2) Is the PDP rejecting the totality of the results nationwide? If yes, does it mean they also reject the results that would be announced later by INEC which may indicate that they have won in certain areas? Are they also rejecting the results already announced that indicate they won in some areas? For instance, are they rejecting the results of the FCT already announced in which they won?
(3) If indeed they are only rejecting areas where they lost, are they implying that it is only in areas where they won that can be adjudged free and fair and all areas where they lost must be adjudged rigged? Is that the mentality of true democrats?
In the PDP statement, it is curious that they rejected the results as being announced, yet they claim they are coasting to victory. What kind of logic is that? What kind of confusion is now reigning in the minds of the top hierarchy of the PDP that they can spew such illogicality?
It is now obvious that the top hierarchy of the PDP is hysterical and nervous. We urge them to calm down.
Obviously, this is the first time they are sensing a massive loss of an election as opposition party. It is a new experience for them. They are confused and disoriented. For many years, they were used to manipulating the instruments of State to just write results and announce themselves as winners. As such they have a sense of entitlement to these instruments of State that they could not fully manipulate this time because President Muhammadu Buhari insisted on a level plain field for all.
We advise the PDP that as opposition party for many years, we have been down this road before. This is not the time to sacrifice the country for personal ambition. If they feel they have lost (as their statement clearly indicates), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar must pick up his phone to make that famous call to President Muhammadu Buhari. The world is watching him and so are Nigerians.
Finally, we urge INEC, Nigerians and our international friends not to be swayed by these infantile antics of the PDP. The process of collation and announcement that is on-going should be done to its logical conclusion after which anyone who is aggrieved should take full advantage of the provisions of the law.
