Ryan Giggs tells Bruno Fernandes what to do to earn Eric Cantona comparisons

Manchester United legend, Ryan Giggs, has told Bruno Fernandes he needs to keep going, and help the club win trophies, if he truly wants to be considered a great like the legendary Eric Cantona.

Fernandes has drawn comparisons with the former player-turned actor, after recently matching the record for the fastest player to reach 15 assists in the Premier League— a record previously held by Cantona.

But Giggs believes that while the Portuguese has done well so far in his Man United career, more needs to be done.

He said in a recent interview, “Eric, when we won the FA Cup in 95-96, he was the difference.

“In the big games he would every often be the difference. Fernandes undoubtedly has had a massive impact on United. There have been comparisons with Eric and the impact he has had – not just his quality but the fact everyone around him seems to be playing better.

“You can just see he is a winner. When things aren’t going right he is telling other players, he’s having a go at the referee, he is constantly moaning and he wants to win.

“He has been a revelation since he came to United. Like all top players, he has to do it in the big games and then win trophies.”
