“It’s about better football planning at the club.”
It’s not clear at the moment Rangnick will continue as manager or move upstairs at the end of the season.

He insists they should have won last season’s Europa League final against Villarreal.
Fred added: “Every player who comes to this club wants to win trophies. Me too, Bruno, Alex, Cristiano, Sancho, all of us.
“We wanted titles but it was a long drought. With all due respect to Villarreal, our mission was to win the Europa League final and we failed.

The club are the outsiders to win the competition but Fred says that strange things have happened.

“It wouldn’t be crazy, it could happen, but we have to do our best because we’re far from being one of the favorites in this competition.”
