Loads of Manchester United fans are delighted after it was recently announced Bruno Fernandes has won the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month award for February. One member of the Old Trafford faithful described the 25-year-old as an “alpha” player.
Fernandes won a whopping 58% of the vote, beating club captain Harry Maguire and the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Richarlison to the award. Both United players received the same monthly rating on WhoScored (via Football FanCast) as the Red Devils won 3 out of 5 games in February, including a dominant 5-0 victory over Belgian side Club Brugge in the Europa League.
Having moved to Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon in January for a reported £49.5m fee, the Portuguese midfielder has bagged 2 goals and provided 3 assists in just 5 games in the Premier League. His current market value stands at £54m (Transfermarkt).
Were critics too quick to mock Odion Ighalo?
Fernandes has clearly made a major impact already during his time at Old Trafford as United find themselves in the race for the top four and coveted Champions League football. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side lie only three points behind Chelsea and remain in the hunt for silverware as they face Norwich City in the FA Cup quarter finals and Austrian side LASK in the Europa League.
Take a look at some of the best reactions to the announcement on Twitter…

No one else is more deserving tbh. Ole should be named manager of the month as well.
