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.
“Fred will get his chances, maybe tomorrow.”
