Former Manchester  United striker Dimitar Berbatov has called Bruno Fernandes the ideal no.10 because of his knack for scoring goals and always driving into the box.

The Bulgarian also said he would have loved to play alongside the Portugal International.

Speaking to Betfair about the Portuguese, the former United striker said:

“I would have enjoyed playing in front of Fernandes because, for a striker, you are always willing to make runs when you know you have somebody in midfield who can find you with a pass.

“It will be difficult for United to finish in the Premier League top four but, with Spurs and Chelsea performing inconsistently, it is not impossible. United look like a different team with Fernandes always looking to get on the ball, drive them forward and play the strikers in.

“As well as his creativity, Fernandes has a good shot on him. The only aspect of his performance that he needs to work on is his aggression in the defensive part of the game but that should come as he gets more experience in the Premier League.”

Fernandes has so far enjoyed a bright start to his United career and will be looking to continue in his rich vein of form when we play against Everton this weekend.
