Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar has detailed on how Bruno Fernandes helped grow the team.
Fernandes is a new signing for United, and the fact that was able to bring the team together so soon shows that he will be a valuable member of the club in the future.
“We have to admit that he’s come in and been a massive influence. A massive impact. He’s been fantastic, scoring goals, creating goals, but also his enthusiasm and mentality around the place has helped,” Solskjaer said.
“Maybe today you can see a tired Bruno and that’s natural because he’s played too much. You can see his passion – he’s moaning a little bit here and there so we will have to take that away from him at times – but he’s stepped up calm as you like and slotted away the penalty.”
After defeat against Burnley in January, Champions League qualification looked like a distant dream and even when games resumed in June, United found themselves eight points off Leicester in third, and the manager hailed his staff as well as the players for getting them over the line.
“It’s been a massive achievement by players and staff the staff are incredible,” Solskjaer said. “We did have a chat with everyone this morning that no matter what happens we’ve come so far as a team, built a culture, very proud of our effort.”
