Andreas Pereira hails Bruno Fernandes impact
Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has paid tribute to midfielder Bruno Fernandes, who joined the club from Sporting Lisbon in January.
Fernandes was in terrific form prior to the suspension of football in March and Andreas is among the Portuguese schemer’s admirers.
“He has a lot of quality. He joined the team and has already shown that,” he told Esporte Interativo. “Of course, it’s very good to have another player who speaks Portuguese, who can mix with us there.
“We don’t want to hit our heads on the pitch when there’s one who doesn’t understand us. Bruno joining is already making a difference. I didn’t know that he played a little behind the striker at Sporting.
But I think it’s like when you join a team, play more forward and take a little less responsibility for defending, you feel freer. That’s what he’s showing.
“And I think it helped him a lot. And I think the more confidence, he’ll be able to play in any place in midfield.”
