Bruno Fernandes can help to make United title challengers next season according to Dimitar Berbatov.
The Red Devils recovered quite well from their poor start to the Premier League season and ended their 2019/20 campaign at third place just above Chelsea and Leicester City, securing a Champions League spot.
Former United forward, Dimitar Berbatov believes that the addition of Bruno Fernandes back in January has been rewarding for the team and the Portuguese can play an instrumental role in helping United challenge the Premier League title next term.
“The signing of Bruno Fernandes lifted the team massively,” Berbatov said in his Betfair blog. “The team’s spirit changed when he came in, he has blended in really well, connecting the back four and the attack.
“To step up and show that responsibility is huge, he’s been an amazing signing for them. He’s important to United, but important to the players around him also. He’s been a very pleasant surprise because usually one player doesn’t make such a difference. United need to maintain this level of consistency.
“I’m happy for everyone at the United after they hit their target of qualifying for the Champions League. They deserve it. They had to beat Leicester and they did it. I’m happy for Ole and the team, this will be huge for the club and for everybody.”
