One of the Manchester United legends, Rio Ferdinand asked his former club not to hesitate to sign star players. According to him, Bruno Fernandes is a real example of this situation.
Indeed, throughout the first half of this season, Manchester United’s performance was far from consistent. They even had almost entered the relegation zone of the Premier League standings, because they had a series of negative results.
However, the performance of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops immediately changed drastically since the second half rolled around. This is inseparable from the arrival of Bruno Fernandes, where the Portuguese midfielder was bought from Sporting CP in the winter transfer market last January.
Since joining, the playmaker immediately joined the MU squad and managed to bring the club nicknamed the Red Devils to a series of good results and finally finished 3rd in the Premier League final standings.
Rio Ferdinand himself considers Bruno Fernandes like a breath of fresh air for Manchester United.
“Fernandes is a breath of fresh air for this team,” said Ferdinand to BT Sports.
According to him, the presence of Bruno Fernandes has increased the level of attacking power of Manchester United. The club’s front line players have become more creative since the Portuguese player’s arrival.
“He was able to open the imagination of this team. You can look at Marcus Rashford, Anthhony Martial and Mason Greenwood, when Bruno has the ball, they know that their chances to score are coming.” He said.
That way, Ferdinand also drew the conclusion that players with this star status have proven to be able to perform well at Manchester United.
It is for this reason that he hopes that Manchester United’s management will not have to hesitate to recruit top players in the transfer market this summer. Their presence will be as important as Bruno Fernandes next season.
“Fernandes does what top players usually do. They can change a team with their presence, and that’s what we see from Fernandes at Manchester United.” he said.
In fact, Manchester United has recently been linked with a number of top names, including Jadon Sancho and Kai Havertz. But until now, there is no player has been officially recruited by the Premier League giants.
