He thought that he would not be able to get married at the end of the last season, thinking he would be part of the Brazil national team for the summer’s Copa America, but unfortunately, he was dropped by Brazil and was not even included in the squad following his poor performance in the last season. 

He was later mocked by his friends in Manchester United for having booked his marriage in July, pleading then-manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for time off.

Who are the major impacts in his career?

His family is undoubtedly a major impact on his career. His father signed him for football training when he was just four, and by the age of 10, he was already playing for Atletico Mineiro.

Throughout his journey from Atletico to Manchester United with Internacional and Shakhtar Donetsk in between, his family was always there to support him as it was a dream of everyone in the family.

Besides his family, he credits his former youth coach Fernandao for playing a major impact in developing him as a player. 

Fernandao, who died at the age of 36 in a helicopter accident, was a player as well as a coach at Internacional at the time when Frederico was playing for Internacional

As a youth coach, Fernandao advised him not to lose that desire to play football as he foresaw the desire he had and advised him not to stop playing football with such desire, joy, and a smile that would take him far and create a history.

His advice helped Frederico a lot in his career and feels grateful forever.
