Angry Fluminense Fans Paint ‘Fred Out’ On Training Ground Wall After Struggling Striker’s Woeful Penalty Miss (Photo)

By Chris Wright

Coming off the back of a dismal showing for Brazil at the World Cup, Fluminense striker Fred is under all sorts of pressure at club level too having failed to make any kind of impression in the Brazilian league since returning from the tournament.

Indeed, Flu fans are growing tired of Fred’s moribund form, with the 30-year-old forward coming in for some severe criticism from his own supporters for scoring just once in his last seven club games – a meaningless consolation goal in a 5-2 Brazilian cup defeat a couple of weeks ago.

On Sunday, Flu took on Rio rivals Botafogo in the league, with Fred botching a late penalty in a 2-0 defeat at the Maracana.

This prompted several livid Flu supporters to sneak up to the perimeter wall at the club’s training headquarters in the wee small hours of Monday morning and daub “Fred Out” in large letters all over it…

Poor Fred. It’s not his fault he’s a bit rubbish, now is it?

  1. SG says:

    Maybe they’ll get a strike partner for him. Rubblelino.

  2. Jarren says:

    What’s happened to Fred? If I remember, he was ace at the Confederations cup last year.

    Now he’s turned into a depressing version of Torres.

    If this continues he will be forever called “Poor Fred”, in sympathy but also form.

    How awful.
