Man United midfielder Fred claims the club's summer signings have brought a 'different mentality' to the squad... as he credits Casemiro and Co for making the team believe they can win from any position
- Man United spent big last summer after a disappointing 2021-22 campaign
- Fred believes the summer signings have changed the mentality in the squad
- He now feels United believe they can win any match they are involved in
Manchester United's unlikely goal hero Fred has credited the club’s summer signings for giving Erik ten Hag’s side a winning mentality this season.
United are on a roll after winning the Carabao Cup and advancing in the FA Cup and Europa League. They visit bitter rivals Liverpool on Sunday still in contention for the Premier League title.
Ten Hag has transformed the mood around Old Trafford after signing Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen, Antony and Tyrell Malacia in the summer. Wout Weghorst and Marcel Sabitzer arrived on loan in January.
The United manager has also improved the squad he inherited at Old Trafford, with Fred one of the players to benefit most. The Brazil midfielder scored in Wednesday’s FA Cup fifth round win over West Ham and now has six goals for the season – just two short of his total in the first four years at United combined.
Fred, who turns 30 this weekend, claims the new signings have helped to change the mind-set at United. He has formed an effective midfield partnership with Casemiro and says his Brazil teammate has been particularly influential.

‘We brought in players with a good mentality, and now the players that were here before change mentality as well,’ he said. ‘It’s the same players, but a different mentality. Everyone is important, now we have one way to go.
‘Of course, Casemiro, he won a lot of trophies in Real Madrid. He has a good mentality in the national team as well, and he’s important to be a part of our squad.
‘He’s a big leader. He talks a lot with us, with every player, every day. He tries to work on his English as well. He is a good guy, everyone knows this, he has a good way in the dressing-room.
‘I love to play with Casemiro. We have a good squad, in midfield and everywhere. It’s important to have a good squad, we have a lot of games.’
On his scoring streak this season, Fred added: ‘We have a good season, and a good season for myself. It’s important to score and to help my teammates. Erik ten Hag has brought energy to our dressing-room, so it’s a good season and we need to keep it going.
‘Like against West Ham, we were 1-0 down, but every moment we believe. We have the mentality, and it’s important to keep this to win the trophies.’
