Brazil team doctor provides fresh update on Fred’s ankle injury

Brazil’s team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar has revealed that Manchester United’s first summer signing Fred has suffered ‘an ankle trauma’ following a challenge from Casemiro in national team training.

United announced on Tuesday that they have agreed on a £47m deal to sign the midfielder from Shakhtar Donetsk but the 25-year-old has since suffered a setback in terms of an injury.

Team doctor Lasmar has now confirmed that the Brazilian has experienced a trauma in his ankle and further tests in the coming days could confirm the extent of the problem.

Brazil are currently training at Tottenham’s Enfield Training Centre ahead of the summer World Cup finals in Russia where they would be playing against Switzerland in their opening game.

At this stage, Fred’s participation at the tournament appears in potential doubt, but hopefully, the injury is only a minor one and he can relish the dream of representing his nation at the World Cup.

On the other hand, Fred’s non-involvement in Russia would only be advantageous for United, who could potentially have him early for their pre-season tour of the United States.


  1. I am sure if Manchester United get another signing in the midfield whom I prefer to be verati, it will be awesome to watch game at old traford.
