​Manchester United midfielder Fred was reportedly made fun of by his team-mates after his wedding saga this summer.


The former Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder missed out on Brazil's squad for the Copa America this summer. And The Times report that Fred delayed his wedding until after the international tournament, forcing him to miss parts of pre-season.


Fred posted an image on Instagram on July 15 of his wedding to Monique Salum in Belo Horizonte in Brazil.



The report then added that Fred's United teammates found this pretty hilarious. Copa America was played from June 14 to July 7 in Brazil, with the host nation beating Peru to lift the ninth trophy in their history.


Fred was the ‘butt of jokes’ from his teammates because he had wrongly assumed he would be involved in the Copa America, which finished a week before the wedding date, but he was later dropped from the Brazil squad.


He then ​had to plead with Solskjaer to get time off, and some staff were surprised that the manager caved in.


Fred is in line to partner McTominay as part of Manchester United’s midfield on Sunday when Liverpool visit Old Trafford, with Solskjaer running out of options in the absence of star man Paul Pogba.
