In his debut month in the PL, after being signed in January by Sporting, Bruno Fernandes has been a leading figure in Manchester United and was challenging for the best player award in February.
Wes Brown is impressed by Bruno Fernandes
Former Man United player Wes Brown has credited Bruno Fernandes for the improved form of Manchester United, as, in his opinion, the Portugal star raised the team. The 25-year-old midfielder arrived at Old Trafford through a winter transfer window from Sporting and instantly had an impact, helping drive the United up in a form in which they reached 10-gameplay unbeaten since their last Premier League loss against Burnley in January. Bruno, who made his debut against the Wolves last month, has already made seven starts in all competitions and has played a vital role for Solskjaer’s side, as they seek to close the gap in the Champions League. And the three-pointer Brown was impressed by the influence that the Portuguese international has had.
Bruno changed the whole team
“It’s interesting when the players come in January because you don’t know how they will do when they arrive, sometimes it takes time for them to come in and settle down. But Fernandes came and changed the whole team,” Brown told reporters. He’s such a player Man United have been missing. He wants to get on the ball and get these little dinks on top, and he has some special moves.” By doing that, he has brought confidence to the team, which was not before. He was great, and I think the team bounced off him coming, and they keep improving with him in it.”
Fernandes will positively affect the squad
Wes Brown, who went through the ranks of United and made more than 200 appearances in the first team, he believes that the January arrival of Fernandes and Odion Ighalo will positively affect the other players in the squad. “When you get these special players, you want to do just as well or get better than them, which improves the team,” Brown said. “Everyone respects the fact that Bruno is a quality player, and that can only enhance the rest of the team. “This is what United needed all season, and the confidence he brought to the team is brilliant.”
There are only nine league games left this season, and Man United are hoping to push their way into the top ten, with just three points separating Ole’s side from the fourth Chelsea. And Brown is confident that his former team can secure Champions League football next season. “I think they will be able to do this, but they had a few small opportunities to close the gap on Chelsea, which they did not take, and eventually they will end. But these games are considered towards the end of the season. It is to receive.”
