Bruno Fernandes makes an immediate impact

The sports press has been raving about the electrifying start that Manchester United new boy Bruno Fernandes has enjoyed since joining from Sporting at the end of January for a fee reportedly worth up to €80m.

With three goals and three assists in just eight games, he is already the idol of Old Trafford. Such has been his impact that the 25 year-old midfielder has been crowned English Premier League ‘Player of the Month’ for February.
Fernandes made an energetic debut in the goalless draw with Wolves and a fortnight later he starred in an impressive 2-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The following week saw Fernandes notch his first goal for the club in the 3-0 win against Watford, where he scored a penalty just before the interval. He would then go on to set up Mason Greenwood to score the third goal. The Portugal international beat Marcos Alonso, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Matt Doherty to the award.

Bruno Fernandes has also paid tribute to Portugal team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo, describing his national team captain as an ‘idol’.
‘When I was called up by Portugal, he came to me saying, “You are doing a good job at Sporting, I like it”. ‘Words like these make the difference,’ said Fernandes.
