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.”
