Manchester United midfielder Fred has responded to recent criticism of himself and his team, accepting that this is justified.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men suffered a 1-0 defeat at Newcastle, where Matty Longstaff's 19-year-old goal in his Premier League debut led the visitors to a downfall.
There are now 11 matches in all competitions since United had their last win on the road, with the team entering the international break at 12th after winning two wins in eight league games.
Gary Neville and Roy Keane have been critical in recent weeks for player performance as well as United's overall situation.
And although he likes some experts, Fred respects the opinion of many Red Devils legends that were negative.
“They have won a lot of titles with this club,” Fred is quoted in The Sun. “We have to shut up and work in the field.
“Some critics are useless – but many can offer me lessons.
“I like reading what people are saying about my performances. With that, I can try to improve.
“Every day when I get to the training camp, when I see those big letters with the club name, I pinch myself.
“So I know this club is huge. I enjoy reading about your history, best players and historical moments.
"It was not a good time for us – our rivals are winning titles and we are not in the Champions League. That makes our fans sad and I feel sad too.
"This club deserves cutlery and we will fight to improve. We have to put United back where it should never have left."
