O’Shea speaks on the impact Bruno Fernandes has had at Manchester United

Bruno Fernandes is the reason Manchester United have maintained an 11 match unbeaten run, according to former defender, John O’shea.

The 38 year old made this known as he recently linked up with the official Man United website.

He said: “He’s had that initial burst when the run was incredible and he went through a few injuries to key players, but Bruno Fernandes coming in seems to have given everybody a huge lift.

“That has coincided with the team going on a fantastic run, looking very threatening again and that is without Marcus Rashford, who has proven to be a big player.

“Unfortunately the unforeseen circumstances have hindered everyone a little bit, especially Ole, but it’s a chance for some of the boys who are missing to get back in and be available. That will be a boost for everyone and hopefully, we can push on for that top-four spot.”

O’shea’s comments about Fernandes are the same as have been echoed by several other players before now.

Fernandes joined United for more than £40 million in January, and has been a regular presence in Olè’s eleven.
