Manchester United star Fred admits the club have a host of issues that need solving - on and off the field - if they want to restore the success of yesteryear.
The Brazilian has come on leaps and bounds this season but he and his team-mates have regularly come in for criticism.
Inconsistency has blighted the Red Devils campaign as they try in vain to get some momentum going at Old Trafford.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who himself has been questioned, recently spent big on Portuguese goal machine Bruno Fernandes which could help with United productivity in the final third.
"We are lacking a lot right now, first of all we need to figure out things on the pitch, we are lacking creativity, especially in midfield," Fred said in an interview with Ale Oliveira.
Away from the pitch Solskjaer has had to deal with a squad of players signed under different regimes with different ideas.
That has led to some criticising the club's unity with a lack of shared values often rearing its ugly head during matches - something Fred admits has to change.
"We also need to improve as a group, our group lacks the ‘sticking together mentality’, we have lots of problems.
"There are a lot of discussions, every group has this sort of problem, but ours has this.
"Vanity is also an issue and we need to stop this and just run on the pitch. ‘We need to stick a goal inside our minds, focus on it and go forward.
"We need to be on the same page and today some players have different objectives, there are players that just want to solve problems alone and this is wrong."
