Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, has revealed he has no problems playing anywhere on the pitch, if Paul Pogba is deployed in the number 10 role.

The Portuguese made the clarification recently amid the ongoing talk about him being unhappy with Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, after he was asked to play on a different part of the pitch in United’s goalless draw against Chelsea.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Fernandes said, “There is a lot of conversations about this situation and playing different formations where Bruno and Paul can play together.

“It doesn’t matter if I play in the first XI or Paul plays in the first XI, if I play no 10 or Paul players no 10.

“As a player you want to play, for me it doesn’t matter about the formation. The most important thing is helping the team, and if the coach thinks I need to play on the left, right, centre, no 8 or no 10, I have no problem playing everywhere. I can adapt to everything.

“It’s not a problem, I adapt really quick to different positions or formation. For me, it’s not a problem. Of course not every player has that capacity to be in a different place or play a different role.

He added, “Most of the time you don’t need to play your best in that position, you have to do what you can that is best for the team. Sometimes it’s not about you, it’s about the team and we need to be like that to win trophies.”

Fernandes and Pogba played together in Sunday’s 1-0 loss to Arsenal, but we didn’t quite see the same chemistry we saw between them during the restart last season.
