Fernandes Follow Cantona’s Footsteps

By | January 30, 2021

LONDON: Manchester United may miss the Premier League after losing to Sheffield United, but their ability to compete for the title this season proves the impact Bruno Fernandes has had at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad travel to Arsenal tomorrow, a full year after the Portuguese midfielder joined United who was then in fifth place, 30 points behind the leaders.

Solskjaer’s position also faltered after losing 2-0 to Burnley in the last game of the league before Fernandes’ arrival.

In 52 appearances, the 26-year-old has scored 28 goals and scored 18 goals, qualifying him to be compared to United legend Eric Cantona.

Within a year, no team collected more Premier League points than United.

“I don’t do anything like say ‘I want to be a leader or do something extraordinary’, it’s my natural way. It’s in my game.

“For me the important thing is to help everyone with my voice and energy, and what I do in the game to help the team,” Fernandes said.
