This FM 2014 Player Profile of Fred shows a real creative force, someone that causes havoc sat behind the striker. Maybe best used as an Enganche in the AMC slot, Fred could be the link from midfield to attack, the hook and pivot of your team. His strengths are good mental stats, with the physique and technical ability to attack a defence direct. My only minor worry is the Brazilian’s passing ability (which is important for the roles Fred may be best used in) but that can be easily increased with individual training.
Fred developed well in my future save, but human management could achieve better results. Like many this year, its a shame Fred joined Shakhtar recently as that puts his starting price to a ludicrous £33 million, it will drop significantly though.
