Bruno Fernandes pleased to receive praise from Manchester United legends Gary Neville and Roy Keane

Manchester United new boy Bruno Fernandes says he’s flattered to receive praise from club legends Gary Neville and Roy Keane about his magnificent opening performances in England. The 25-year-old midfielder has made an immediate impact at Old Trafford – racking up three goals and four assists since arriving in January – and the Red Devils are yet to lose a game in which he’s been playing. Fernandes has already been compared to the likes of Eric Cantona and Paul Scholes and his phenomenal start has raised serious questions about whether or not Paul Pogba has a future at United.

Speaking after Fernandes’ impressive performance in the Manchester derby, ex-United right-back Neville highlighted the Portuguese’s insatiable appetite for winning back the ball.

Asked about Neville’s comments, Fernandes replied: ‘It’s so nice to hear these kind of words from legends. ‘When I react when I lose the ball I am angry, every time I want more. I think this is the difference between me and some players. If you want to be better and better and be one of the best, you need to look for the ball. ‘When in the team you have one, two or three players who have that desire, you push the others ‘When I react when I lose the ball I am angry, every time I want more. I think this is the difference between me and some players. ‘If you want to be better and better and be one of the best, you need to look for the ball. ‘When in the team you have one, two or three players who have that desire, you push the others.’
