Manchester United's Fred has heaped praise upon Bruno Fernandes and says he has been a key factor in the team's upturn in form.
Fernandes joined from Sporting Lisbon in January and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have since not lost a game in all competitions.
Fred, who has also put in some impressive displays this season, has waxed lyrical about his new midfield partner, and spoke to Trivela about the impact he had before the campaign was suspended.
"We were going through a very good phase," Fred said. "We were in a growing phase. We were doing very well in the Premier League, very well in the Europa League. We would have a chance to be champions (of the Europa League) before the stop.
"But I believe that our group got together a lot [more] at the end, we started helping each other with a different view of the game and we grew up on the pitch.
"We started to get better together, and Bruno Fernandes' arrival was important for us, giving a calm change to our midfield. But we must also give credit to Ole and to our entire group, because we were on a very, very good rise.
"Bruno Fernandes is a very important player, he arrived and gave an 'up' in our squad. He is a player with a lot of ambition but I believe that every player who plays for Manchester United needs to have this ambition to want to win, to be victorious, because it is a gigantic club.
"We always have to think about the titles, the victories. He arrived very well, helped us a lot and, for sure, he is an inspiration to be followed. I'm sure he will still grow a lot within United."
United fans will be desperately hoping both Fernandes and Fred can continue their fine form when football eventually resumes, with things looking on the up at Old Trafford.
