Following a prolonged period of transfer talks and speculations, Bruno Fernandes arrived England in the final stages of the winter transfer window this year and showcased a classy debut performance for Manchester United.

The Portuguese star added his creativity and versatility to the squad to make real impact and the attacker had quite succeeded in doing so. Although they failed to score the goal to get ahead in a match featuring them against Wolves, the fresh arrival’s work rate was quite appreciable.

Consequently, the 25-year-old bagged plenty of praises from the supporters as well as the manager for the way he adapted to the pace of Premier League in virtually no time. And now, Man City star Bernando Silva has opened up his thoughts on United’s new playmaker, being one of the same kind.

Silva told Sky Sports: “I think he is going to adapt [to the Premier League], he has already played in Italy when he was younger, so it’s not his first experience aboard.


Bruno Fernandes’ Reaction On Getting Scholes Shirt At Manchester United

“I’m happy for him, I’m happy that he’s playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world and I think he’s going to do great at Man Utd. The best thing about Bruno is his mentality and the way he gives himself to the team 100 per cent and he just goes in every game.

“It doesn’t matter who he’s playing against and his mentality and character is the best thing about him.

“Changing is always complicated, you have to adapt to the way your new team plays, your team-mates, the way the manager wants to play, sometimes new systems so maybe it will take him a few months but I think it’s good that he’s here and he’ll be a great asset for Man Utd – but hopefully not against Man City.”
