It means that today’s game will be our last before this month’s international break and Fred says the Reds fully understand the challenge that awaits in the 17:45 BST kick-off, in Chisinau.
“It’s going to be a difficult game against a good team,” he explained to club media. “Sheriff are a high-quality team. Unfortunately, we lost our first game, so we have to look to win. We know it won’t be an easy game but we’ll do everything to come away with the win.”
The fact Sheriff started their Group E campaign with a superb 3-0 away win at Omonia Nicosia suggests they will be awkward opponents in our final game before the international break.
“They beat Real Madrid in the Champions League last season,” said Fred. “They’ve started the competition well so it won’t be an easy game. They’re a good team, hard to play against, and their fans will be behind them.
“But we’re Manchester United. We must always look to win.”
