Fred Injured In Brazil Training Session

Fred Injured In Brazil Training Session

Brazil are now based at Tottenham's training base prior to flying out to Russian Federation, and footage posted to Twitter by Luiz Felipe Castro showss Fred go to ground after a challenge from Real Madrid's Casemiro.

Fred soon received treatment for the injury and was unable to take part in the rest of the training session.

Brazil's Manchester United-bound midfielder Fred injured his ankle in training on Thursday, a week before the start of the World Cup in Russia, British media reported. Tomorrow we will have a clearer possibility.

Lasmar is quoted by The Independent: "Today Fred had trauma in his ankle but it is too early to say anything about it".

"The negotiations were interesting, and, as I said earlier, we are fully satisfied with the agreement terms".

Brazil kick off their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on Sunday night, before facing Costa Rica and Serbia over the course of June in what is a noticeably competitive Group E.

He has been included in Tite's World Cup squad but was forced out of a session at Tottenham's Enfield training base, with ice applied to his right ankle.

He has completed his United medical, although the transfer is yet to be formally completed.

The five-time winners play further Group E matches against Costa Rica and Serbia in Russian Federation. Lasmar said Augusto could play on Sunday depending on how his recovery continues this week.
