Manchester United’s January recruit Bruno Fernandes has been named the Premier League’s Player of the Month for February after proving impactful for the Red Devils through the three starts he has had to date.
The Portuguese playmaker, who has enjoyed an exceptional start to life at Old Trafford in his first month with Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side, beat out the likes of Chelsea’s Marcos Alonso and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Arsenal to the accolade. In this time, Fernandes has played three games for United, scoring two goals and providing three assists.
He joined United for an initial fee of €55 million, and since then, has thrived in the middle of the park en route to being named the club’s player of the month. The 25-year-old has helped the English side beat top-four opponents Chelsea and Manchester City besides pulling strings in attack.
Since I was a kid, it was a dream to play for Man United, and to be there at Old Trafford, is the biggest dream of my career,” Fernandes said. “When you come to a new club you always want to score, and the first goal is special. It doesn’t matter how the goal is scored, but important is the goal’s worth.
“I’m happy with my start but from now I need to give more to be better.” While Fernandes has displayed red-hot form since putting on his red outfit, he will have to wait for an indefinite time for his next outing for United as the Premier League has been suspended until April 4 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
