The former Sporting Lisbon attacking midfielder and captain, Bruno Fernandes, has finally secured a huge deal in the winter January transfer window, that saw him join Manchester United for a whooping £68million.
According to ‘The Times’, Fernandes is reported to have been irked by his team-mates who have shown willingness to settle for a point. Fernandez has publicly demanded more ahead of this weekend's crucial derby.
Fernandes, who vowed to walk in the footstep of Cristiano Ronaldo, his compatriot, has scored three goals since arriving at the Old Trafford and was once again on target on Merseyside Derby to spare David de Gea's blushes.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin had pounced on the De Gea’s to open the scoring in bizarre fashion before Fernandes' powerful strike from distance hauled the visitors back on level terms. Fernandes was surprised by the reaction of his fellow stars.
United will be facing a stern test as they square up against neighbours City in Sunday's highly-anticipated derby clash, and the 25-year-old is yet to taste defeat at his new club.
”With this draw, we need to be a little bit mad, because we need to do much better,” Fernandes revealed.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who hailed the new addition and his [Bruno] for leadership qualities said,
”Bruno has come in as a leader and he has shown he is a leader.
”He is a winner. He does not take 99 per cent as good enough. I like to see that in a player. He doesn't change coming into a new team.”
