Manchester United has had a massive morale boost ever since Bruno Fernandes joined their ranks. While there is no denying that the Portuguese international has been hyped up to great proportions, his impact does make it appear a normative response.
In particular, the attacking midfielder has unleashed a creative vigor that was absent amongst the Red Devils for quite a while now.
To add to that, he is also a welcome addition to the roster, as evident in his shared banter with Anthony Martial, the manner in which he has been aiding Scott McTominay in training, as well as how his presence alone has had a catalyzing influence on Fred’s numbers.
What comes as no surprise however is that Fernandes has always been a great teammate.
Milan Skriniar attested to the same, commenting on their shared time at Sampdoria in the Serie A.
Replying to a query on a QnA for his current club (via Goal), Inter Milan, Skriniar states: “I think one of my best team-mates was Bruno Fernandes. I always liked him back from our time together at Sampdoria.”
The centre-back was linked with Manchester United in the past when their hunt for an apt defender was leading them to heights of desperation. It will be interesting to see if think link with Fernandes may hold something for the future after all.
Skriniar also commented on the ongoing COVID-19 crisis that has hit Italy quite hard, with the European nation reporting the highest number of infected cases and deaths outside of mainland China. The 25-year-old states: “It is a delicate time, but we can face it together as a team. We really miss football and training, but what’s important right now is fighting this virus. I hear people singing from the balcony every evening and that’s wonderful, even if I often don’t understand the lyrics.”
