Fred has expressed his belief that James Garner is the best young player at Manchester United, highlighting his “impressive vision” and “incredible” passing range.
Garner rose through the youth ranks at Old Trafford before making the step up to the senior squad in 2018, but has since been made to wait for an opportunity to shine.
The 19-year-old made his debut when coming on as a late substitute during the win over Crystal Palace in February 2019, and was finally handed his first start for the club in October.
Despite his limited playing time, Fred insists that the English midfielder is the best young player on United’s books at the moment, and predicts he will go on to achieve great things at the club.
When asked who has the most potential out of Garner, Williams and Greenwood, Fred told Trivela:
“They are all great players. The club has an important role in using many academy players, it has this history of using the kids that come up from the academy, who turn professional and make history at the club.
“This process is important. They are great players, with a lot of potential for the future. All are very good, they are not in this profession for nothing, but the player who impresses me most is Jimmy Garner.
“Not just because he is in the same position as me, but because he is a player who has an impressive vision of the game, and he has a huge future for United. In addition to his impressive game vision, he always plays with his head up, has an impressive shot and is an incredible passer. He is a player that I admire a lot.”
