Bruno Fernandes receives message from Sir Alex Ferguson after Man Utd "regret" admission

Posted Saturday, May 22, 2021 by

Portuguese star Bruno Fernandes has been a revelation since joining Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon - and now legendary Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson has had his say on the midfielder

Legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has sent a charming message to Bruno Fernandes, labelling the Portuguese ace a “fantastic” player.

Fernandes has been outstanding since his £46.6million move from Sporting Lisbon last year, scoring 40 goals and contributing 25 assists in 70 matches for the Red Devils.

His performances have taken United to the next level under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and he is widely recognised as the club’s best signing since Ferguson retired in 2013.

The 26-year-old’s form has not been lost on Fergie, who has nothing but kind words to say about United’s Portuguese playmaker.

Speaking to the BBC, he said: “He's been fantastic the lad.

"He has scored important goals and even when he's taking his penalty kicks, he's very, very confident about them.

"I can't even think of a goalkeeper who has got anywhere near his penalty kicks.

"So he's calm, his shots from outside the box are always a threat and he's got that thing that United have really needed over the last few years, the ability to make a pass in the final third and open up defences, I think that's important.”

Ferguson’s comments come just days after Fernandes revealed that he would love the opportunity to speak to the legendary Scot about improving his game.

Fernandes told Inside United: “That is one of my biggest regrets in the club until now.

"I met him already but never had the chance to speak with him like I would like to do.

"I think everyone who watched Manchester United in the past remembers Sir Alex. [That is true] for me, growing up and seeing the club, being a fan of the club and seeing the development of the team.

"I would like to have a conversation with him and understand, from his point of view, what he thinks about me and what I can improve or still improve in my game to be better.”
