Bruno Fernandes has turned Manchester Untied’s season around, scoring seven goals and assisting six in just 10 appearances. This works out at a goal or assist every 67 minutes he’s played which is a phenomenal return, especially for a player who is adapting to a new league.
The Portuguese midfielder also won the award in February, the last month before shutdown, meaning he’s now won back to back awards.
Ahead of Thursday night’s 3-0 win over Aston Villa, making United the first team in Premier League history to win four consecutive games by a margin of at least three goals, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised our new signing.
Bruno has come into the club, seen how many good players there are at Manchester United, that we’ve helped him and how his attributes are as well, and it’s been a good little relationship blossoming and he can also feel we help him improve. He’s come in and lifted everyone and it’s been a very, very good start so far.
Had United signed him last summer or even just earlier in the January transfer window, you’d have to think the least we would have achieved this season is a top four finish, but with four games to go in the league, as well as the next rounds in the FA Cup and Europa League, here’s hoping Fernandes can continue to have the same impact and help us end the campaign on a high.
