There is also a lot of discussion around the player and his performances, and one person speaking about the midfielder is Andrea Stramaccioni, who believes the playmaker has a big future at the Red Devils.
Speaking on Sky Sports, via Goal, Stramaccioni said: “Bruno is a very good boy, a very good person. He is a really hard worker, he’s positive. When we were at Udinese he worked a lot and his approach was always positive.
“He can certainly captain Manchester United, he is a really talismanic player. He is loved by the fans, respected by his team-mates – even from opponents. To be captain of Manchester United is something really, really important. I hope he will be.
“I think now we don’t need to think about this kind of thing, he has to think about keeping his performance at a high level, as he is doing, and step by step gain the respect of everyone around him – the media, the fans – and continue to keep a high level.”
There is no doubting how good he has been and why he is already loved by supporters of United as in the 22 games he has played in all competitions he has scored 12 times and picked up eight assists, per Transfermarkt. Meanwhile in the Premier League, he has averaged 3.1 shots, 2.1 key passes and 1.1 successful dribbles per game, via WhoScored.
This shows how crucial he has been for United since he joined and he has definitely been a key reason as to why the club managed to finish third in the Premier League.
However to be already discussed as captain seems to add a lot of unnecessary pressure on the player and it would perhaps be better to let him go about his game and flourish rather than giving him the captaincy less than a year after he has signed for the club.
Possibly in the future it might be a good idea, but it could add a lot of expectation which might be too much for him too soon.
Man United fans, what are your thoughts on Bruno possibly become a future captain of the club? Comment below!
