New Manchester United signing, Bruno Fernandes is a box-to-box player that can break the line of the defence, according to ex Sporting C.P coach, Carlos Carvalhal.
Carlos revealed this as a warning to the Red Devils to not play the Portguese footballer in the No.10 position.
According to Carvalhal, Bruno is most effective when he sits in as a traditional No.8 because of his passing range and ability to organise in the last part of the field.
He added that Fernandes will be a special player in the EPL because he understands everything that happens around him.
His words, “He (Fernandes) is not a number 10,”
“He is a midfielder but he has developed that ability to break the line of the defence to score goals.
“He shoots, he assists, the passes and the free-kicks. But he is not a 10, he is an 8. He is a box-to-box player who understands very well the game. He doesn’t just play. He understands everything that happens around him.
“He can organise the team, he can talk, he can give feedback.. He is kind of like a manager on the pitch. He can organise things in the last part of the pitch. He is a really exciting player.”
“He has been the best player in the Portuguese league for two years minimum,”
“He is in that group of players who are among the best in the world.
“Sometimes these technical players, it is their quality in the defensive transition that is a problem in the Premier League. When they lose the ball, they don’t react quickly enough to win it back, but he has developed a lot in the past two seasons.
“When his team loses the ball, he reacts quickly to win the ball back. That is important in England. He is not lazy, he is the opposite. A fighter. He has everything to be a key player.”
