‘He can become a god at Manchester United just like Cantona’ – Gary Neville hails player

Manchester United legend Gary Neville believes Bruno Fernandes can emulate club legend Eric Cantona and become a god at United if he helps the club win the Premier League title.

The former United right-back insists the Portuguese has transformed the team and believes he has what it takes to be successful at the club.

Speaking about Bruno Fernandes’ brilliant goal vs Everton, Gary Neville told Sky Sports: “I can see why. We saw his stats in the second half. Probably better than Cantona’s in this first year at Manchester United.

“Cantona will be a god at United for winning that (Premier League) title after so long, if Fernandes can do that at United he’ll be the same.

“It’s going to be difficult because at the moment they’re just letting themselves down in defensive parts.

“He takes risks, takes the ball forward, he believes he’s the best player on the pitch and he’s transformed Manchester United in 12 months that were really ordinary.

“Let’s be clear they were an ordinary team, and this player alone, forget Cavani for now, he transformed them before.”
