Bruno Fernandes has taken the Premier League by storm. The Red Devils have not lost a single game since his arrival from Sporting Lisbon in January.

Not only Fernandes has played a crucial role in the club’s 11-match unbeaten run, the former Sporting Lisbon captain has also helped improve the likes of Fred and Scott McTominay.

Odion Ighalo, who also joined Manchester United in the winter window, believes his former Udinese teammate could contribute even more following Paul Pogba’s return from injury.

“He [Pogba] is working hard to get back to fitness and imagine when we have Pogba and Bruno in the midfield, then you will see a different team – [Marcus] Rashford coming back also,” Ighalo said in an interview with journalist Juliet Bawuah.

“Manchester United is going to be great again, winning games week in, week out. He’s a great player and it’s going to be a privilege to play with him.”

“Bruno is a fantastic player,” the Nigerian striker said. “I played with him in 2013-14 at Udinese. We’ve not seen the best of him yet in the Premier League.

“Once Bruno Fernandes settles down in England you will see what that guy can do. He has vision, he wants the ball always. He can shoot, he can score goals, he is very intelligent.

“Before the ball comes, he is a step ahead to know what he wants to do. In times to come you are going to see what he can do in the Premier League, even better than what he is doing now.”
