Gary O’Neil joined the latest episode of The Debate podcast and discussed Bruno Fernandes’ start to his Manchester United career under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.
The young Portuguese midfielder has truly been a breath of fresh air for the Red Devils ever since his arrival in the January transfer window and as the days go by, his signing is looking better and better.
O’Neil believes that he’s definitely hit the ground running as he plays with that arrogance and the will to grab the games by the scruff of the neck every time he’s on that pitch.
Here’s what the journalist said about him on The Debate podcast (12/3/2020): “He’s got an arrogance about him and when he comes on, it’s about him and he’s willing to take the ball, he grabs the game by the scruff of the neck and he will take an extra touch and he will suck people in. He is a risk-taker. He’s gone out there and hasn’t been a bit-part player, he’s literally taken the game by the scruff. Every time I’ve seen him, he’s been a difference.”
For a player who’s only played nine games for Man United ever since his arrival to the club during the winter transfer market, Fernandes has already managed to ruffle some feathers.
O’Neil believes he’s always been a difference for Solskjaer’s troops whenever he’s been on the pitch and that was also pretty evident in their last 5-0 victory over LASK when he assisted one goal and also deployed six key passes on the night.
Maybe he’s the missing piece Man United need to finally get back to their brilliant best.
