Bruno Fernandes provides insight into what he brings to Man United’s midfield: ‘I’m different’
Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has opened up on what he feels he has added to the club’s ranks, having thoroughly impressed since his arrival in England during the winter transfer window.
Fernandes joins United
On the back of weeks of rampant speculation, Portuguese midfielder Fernandes’ move to Old Trafford was finally made official late in January.
With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having been desperate to add a touch of much-needed creativity to his side’s midfield, the United board eventually agreed to fork out the hefty sum demanded by Sporting CP for their talisman.
The Manchester giants struck a deal which could eventually reach €80 million, with Fernandes having put pen-to-paper on a 5-and-a-half-year contract at Old Trafford.

‘A different player’
Fernandes has since gone on to notch 9 appearances for the Red Devils, with it already evident the type of long-overdue spark set to be introduced to the club’s midfield by his arrival.
The 25-year-old has directly contributed to 7 goals in his 9 outings thus far, amid a string of superb displays.
And, as outlined above, Fernandes himself has today provided an insight into exactly what he feels he has added to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad during his brief stint at Old Trafford to this point.
The Portuguese international suggested that his willingness to ‘take the risk’ set him apart as a ‘different’ type of player to any other on the books of United at present, though he was also quick to add that every member of the club’s squad brings something unique to the table.
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Fernandes explained:
‘I think I’m a different player from the others.’
‘Everyone has a different mould to play, maybe I take more risks, maybe other players don’t take as many, maybe I shoot more, some players pass more, some of the players make more tackles, everyone is different in a club. Some players are similar but they’re never the same player.’
‘I’m a player who normally likes to take the risk, give the last pass and try to give more assists to my team-mates so I need to take the risk. It doesn’t matter for me if someone off the field is not happy about my pass. I will respect it but I will keep trying.’
