Brazil striker Fred is contemplating his future at Lyon after losing his place in the starting line-up.

The 24-year-old, who missed the start of the season because of a broken foot he suffered in the Copa America, has dropped behind Karim Benzema in Les Gones´ pecking order up front.

It has led Fred to consider his future at the Stade Gerland, and he is quoted as telling French newspaper Le Progres: "I want people to have confidence in me and for people to say to me, ´you are the number nine´. But at the moment, that is impossible at Lyon. We play with one out-and-out striker and Karim is playing very well."
