Manchester United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has hailed Bruno Fernandes’ impact in the win against Real Sociedad on Thursday.

The Portuguese was at his inspiring best on the night, as he bagged a brace in the 4-0 victory at the Juventus’ stadium.

The goals have helped the midfielder to 21 strikes this season, and Solskjaer is pleased to have him in the team.

Speaking on the Portuguese’ impact at Man United, Solskjaer said, “We do create chances and he [Bruno] gets them.

“He’s good at finding spaces and his technical ability when it comes to chances is top class. Two very good goals. Bruno always wants to do the next thing correctly. He wants to do the next thing at the best of his ability and that is a very good attribute and quality to have.”

Solskjaer added, “You never rest on your laurels. If he scores two, he wants three, if he gets an assist, he wants another one. He drives everyone on, of course, sometimes he drives too much and wants to do too much. Tonight, he played his position really well and was in the spaces we wanted him and we can see how efficient he is.”
