Bruno Fernandes showed what he is capable of doing for the Old Trafford outfits notwithstanding his debut for Manchester United ending on a barren draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Whilst not being an explosive debut, Fernandes did enough to indicate he will surely pose a threat offensively to any side lined-up against The Red Devils in the subsequent matches.
Bruno’s effort to put United up-front drifted wide as he shot from the angle whilst his second second attempt going straight into the waiting arms of Rui Patricio.
The 25-year-old had five shots, more than anybody else on the pitch, and also the highest amount of overall passes (88) and passes in the opposing half (70), highlighting his influence.
The Portuguese national just completed his much delayed move to the Premier League bigwig on the penultimate day of the January window, with United icing up their transfer with a shocker transfer move of Nigerian national striker Odion Ighalo on loan deal.
Fernandes took a similar career path as five-time ballon dór winner Christiano Ronaldo in moving from Sporting Lisbon to Man United.
Earlier, the 25-year old also revealed that Ronaldo had a major influence in his switch to the Old Trafford outfits. Following that, the midfield ace has begun to draw comparisons with the Juventus forward.
Speaking on a post match interview, former united midfield ace Garry Neville opined that the lad gave an inspiring show on his debut.
“I thought he did okay. I mean, it was a difficult game for him. I thought actually he adapted quite well in the second half and showed a lot of discipline,” Opined Neville.
