Saolskjaer opens up and reveals which star ‘has Ronaldo-like Presence’ for Manchester United
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed that Bruno Fernandes has a Cristiano Ronalo-like Presence at Manchester United.
Since his move to Old Trafford just last season, Fernandes has become the most important player for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and a constant match winner for the club, despite the fact he hasnt goy much help around him.
Solskjaer was a team-mate of the legendary Juventus forward at United and believes Fernandes can make the same sort of impact as his fellow countryman: “He does definitely have that presence and an influence and impact on his team-mates, you can just look at results we’ve had since he came in,” the United boss said in a press conference ahead of Sunday’s Premier League trip to Southampton.
“He’s got loads of energy, leadership, he’s a team player which is the key here now for us going forward.
“Some players will have to sit games out and rest. I wasn’t looking forward to telling Bruno when he was rested against Leipzig but he was absolutely no problem, the same as Marcus [Rashford].
“They know this season is challenging and that’s how we build this team, the culture of the team – it’s about the team, not individuals and Bruno has proved that over and over, that’s it’s the team before ‘I’.”
Fernandes is such a big player for United that he needs to be playing every game for many to believe that the side can actually win games and pick up the results the club need.
It is a massive claim to make from Solskjaer, but that is how important he is to the side
