Bookmark and Share


Brazilian attacking midfielder Fred Da Silva is well-known in the MLS having played for DC United twice and Philidelphia Union, but now Da Silva is lighting up the A-League again, this time with Melbourne Heart.

Squarefootball's Anthony Bedworth managed to catch a few words with the Brazilian this week about his time in the MLS and hopes for the future.

Fred 1Do you still follow the MLS?

Yes I do.

What teams and players have stood out for you this season?

DC United, San Jose and New York. I think Chris Pontius is doing a very good job.

How do you feel the season has gone for your old sides DC United and Philadelphia Union?

DC United have played better this season and more confident. The Union are playing good but struggle to win consistently, maybe because they have a young team.

Since you moved away from the MLS what do you think has changed from your time?

It is much more difficult to find Brazilian food!

 What are the differences and similarities between the MLS and A-League?

The difference is MLS has more teams than A-League have. They are similar though in that in both leagues you have to run a lot.

Fred 2Do you think any other high-profile Brazillian star could be heading to the MLS, players such as Kaka?

Yes, maybe the likes of Ronaldinho, Robinho will come soon.

Where do you see the MLS in 10 years time?

I think the league will be much better than now.

What do you miss most about living in the USA?

I miss my friends, my church and my house.

Would you consider a return to the MLS if the right offer came in?

For sure!

In the MLS today which player would you like to play alongside?

New York's Thierry Henry.

Who has been the best player you have played with during your time at Melbourne Victory?

Myself?!(sarcastically said). Archie Thompson. - Football News & Transfers
