Manchester United’s fans will certainly be anticipating regular football to resume again once the COVID-19 crisis resolves itself.
The Red Devils had a terrific run of games as they went 11 fixtures unbeaten and these featured incredible victories such as goal-heavy wins over Tranmere Rovers, Club Brugge, and LASK as well as a convincing derby win over Manchester City.
The catalyst behind a good chunk of these wins lies to the credit of their most impactful January signing, Bruno Fernandes. Enough hasn’t been said about the Portuguese international as the numbers frankly prove his caliber and sheer influence all too well.
In addition to that, the accolades he picked up during his short yet impactful time at Old Trafford further add to it and now he has another one to his name.

“Bruno is overrated, has inflated stats and plays in a farmer's league. He won't be anywhere near as good in the Premier League.”

The truth simply appears to indicate that the Red Devils ought to have made such a signing earlier and more often, as the player is perfect for the Red Devils on all counts, from on-pitch brilliance and intelligence to an infectious winning mentality.
With Premier League football presently slated for what has been repeatedly reckoned as a rather ambitious early April return, it is certain that supporters will be itching for the return of their new midfield maestro, in particular.
