Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, has been nominated for the UEFA Champions League player of the week, after his invaluable efforts toward our 4-1 win against Istanbul Basaksehir.

The Portuguese scored a brace against the Turkish side, and came close to scoring a third had he not instead, passed up a penalty kick to Marcus Rashford to also get on the score sheet.

Fernandes has been nominated alongside Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund, Robin Gosens of Atalanta, and Ajax’s Dusan Tadic.

Clearly, our man is a strong contender for the award, but we’ll have to wait a bit longer to see if he gets it.
