Bruno Fernandes colored with highest form of midfield recognition at United

Former Manchester United captain Bryan Robson has hailed Bruno Fernandes with the highest honor at the club. 

Robson compared Bruno with United legend Paul Scholes! And it has only been a month!

“Since he came in he has looked a special player. He has a fantastic attitude”, Robson told TalkSport.

“I have met him a few times, I have seen him at the training ground, he mixes really well with the lads, you can see why he was captain of Sporting [Lisbon] and what a talent he is.

“He is not like a Roy Keane, Paul Ince or a Nicky Butt-type of player. For me, he is more like a Paul Scholes; he is brilliant at getting into little pockets in between the defence and the midfield, he gets into these areas and gets himself space.

“But he has also got terrific vision where he sees a pass, he’s got the same vision to hit those great balls that Scholesy used to hit — and he’s also got a goal in his locker.

“Hopefully he proves me right and he goes on to be another Paul Scholes for Manchester United.”

Fernandes won the player of the month in his very first month in English football and with the Premier League suspended now, United fans are more than desperate to watch him back in action.
