Former United player sends message to Solskjaer concerning new signing Bruno Fernanades

Former Manchester United player Ryan Giggs has said manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to find the best position for new signing Bruno Fernandes due to the player’s lack of defensive nous.

Speaking to the Premier League Productions about the Portuguese, the Welshman said:

“You saw glimpses of the quality he does possess. I think it might need a bit of working out what his best position is.

“With his back to goal, I don’t think that’s his position. When he’s a little bit deeper, defensively, he may be a bit of a liability. He’s in between the two really. That’s where you want to see him, coming on to the ball [heading into the final third].

“But also you see when he is that little bit deeper he can spray the passes, he has got the vision to then play them passes. But then you need the runs. I think he’ll want to find his best position first of all. He tired towards the end but you can see the quality that he has got.”

Fernandes was deployed both in a No.10 & No.4 roles on Saturday against Wolves.
