Man Utd flop Fred branded ‘worst signing ever’ after horror show at Newcastle
Matty Longstaff grabbed the winner for the Toon on his Premier League debut as the Red Devils put in a poor showing all round.
There were several United players who were not at the races.
But fans picked on Fred in particular, as he failed to show £53m worth of talent, not for first time.
The Brazil international has failed to impress since joining from Shakhtar Donetsk last summer.
And it appears United fans’ patience with the 26-year-old has just about run out.
Taking to Twitter, the Old Trafford faithful blasted him.
“Not much is made of how much of a bad signing fred has been for United. He cost s*** loads and is absolutely horrific,” one wrote.
“I’m a better footballer than Fred. Give me his contract,” a third demanded.
While a fourth put: “Fred is the worst signing in our history. £50-60m for a cowardly midfielder who’s afraid to pass the ball forward and can’t shoot is terrible. Tried to be supportive but he’s not helping himself.
