Cape Town - Manchester United midfielder Fred admits he feels saddened by the fact that the club's rivals are winning trophies while they are not even in the Champions League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men slumped to a 1-0 loss at embattled Newcastle, where 19-year-old Matty Longstaff's goal on his Premier League debut sent the visitors into a tailspin.

It is now 11 matches in all competitions since United last tasted victory on the road, with the side entering the international break 12th after managing two wins from their eight league games.

The likes of Gary Neville and Roy Keane have been critical in recent weeks of the performances of the players but also the overall situation at United.

And despite having a dig at some pundits, Fred respects the opinion of many Red Devils legends that have been negative.

"They've won many titles with this club," Fred is quoted in The Sun. "We have to shut up and work on the pitch.

"Some critics are pointless - but many can offer me lessons.

"I like to read what people are saying about my performances. With that, I can try to get better.

"Every day when I arrive at the training ground, when I see those big letters with the name of the club, I pinch myself.

"So I know this club is gigantic. I like to read about its history, best players and historical moments.

"It hasn't been great times for us - our rivals are winning titles and we're not even in the Champions League. It makes our fans sad and I feel sad as well.

"This club deserves silverware and we're going to fight to get better. We have to put United back in the place it should never have left."
