Former Manchester United star, Nani, has backed Bruno Fernandes to continue to shine, after his near-perfect start to life in the premier league.
The 26 year old joined Man United from Sporting Lisbon back in January, and since then, has grown to be quite an addition.
In just 35 games, Fernandes has been involved in 34 goals for United, including 21 goals and 13 assists.
It is an incredible record that only a few would have seen coming, but his countryman, Nani says he always knew he would shine at United.
Speaking recently to United Review, the Orlando City winger said: “A big part of this team is Bruno Fernandes. Bruno now is a much better player than when we were playing together.
“He was doing great in Portugal but the Portuguese league is not the same as the Premier League.
“I saw so much potential in Bruno and I told him to go to England if he decided to move to another league.
“I said to him: ‘Your game will fit there and the fans will go crazy for you!'”
Nani added that what makes Fernandes special is that he likes to take risks, and doesn’t care about mistakes.
“The style of his football is something fans appreciate,” he said. “He is a player who likes to take risks in the game, who wants to take the responsibility of the game on his back and make difficult passes, dribbles and shots.
“He doesn’t care about mistakes; he only thinks about success and making the team have success. He knows what that takes. That’s Man United, isn’t it?
“Bruno has done so well until now, scoring goals and setting up a lot of goals, but he will keep improving and making the team even better.”
Fernandes has been nominated for the UEFA Champions League player of the week, after scoring twice to help us beat Istanbul Basaksehir on Tuesday.
