Manchester United midfielder Fred questioned the future of the “Red Devils” after the end of the current season in the English Premier League, with the continued appointment of Ralph Rangnick as interim coach.
Rangnick, 63, will lead United temporarily until the end of the season, before the former Schalke and Razen Palsport RB Leipzig coach moves to work in a consultative position with the English club in the next two years.
“It’s a bit strange,” Fred told Brazilian broadcaster TNT Sports on Tuesday evening. “I know in football it is important to achieve positive results as quickly as possible, but it is also important to have a long-term plan.”
He added, “I think it’s a bit bad for us not having that. At the moment it’s all about short-term goals. We don’t know what will happen after the end of this season,” according to “Reuters”.
Farid’s comments are a rare criticism from a player of the management plan at Manchester United, which is seeking stability after a period of changes in coaches.
United reached the last 16 in the Champions League for the first time since the 2018-2019 season, and will play the first leg against Atletico Madrid, on Wednesday.
