Former Sporting CP footballer, Bruno Fernandes, has been absolutely brilliant for Manchester United ever since he signed. The moment he arrived at Old Trafford, he seemed to take the league by storm. The Red Devils were good before his arrival but after his arrival, the team looks to be on a different level. Not just quality-wise, which they always had, but also mentality and character-wise they seemed to head to the next level. The Portuguese national brought in leadership skills along with his brilliant numbers. He has produced too much already for the Red Devils and his attitude and mentality on the pitch has been a very huge part of United’s improvement.
Bruno Fernandes and his crucial numbers for Manchester United.
To start with, Fernandes is the highest goal-scoring midfielder in the Premier League this season. His form has been phenomenal and regular. Ever since he joined arrived at the Theater of Dreams, no other player has contributed more goals than Bruno and he just arrived in January of 2020.
The midfielder has the most chances and big chances created this season in the Premier League. He is extremely ahead of the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish, and other creative midfielders in the league. He also has the highest amount of key passes made in the league this season. The player has the highest number of goals and assists ahead of any midfielder in Europe’s top five leagues this season.
This is simply, impact. The team was lacking an individual flair that would go on to make a difference. Bruno Fernandes has made all the difference in the world for United. The team was lacking that one final player who could lead and make an impact. They surely have that in the 26-year-old. He can clearly be labeled as United’s talisman.
Can Bruno Fernandes continue this run of form and help United win the Premier League?
