Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes is the closest thing to Scholes at the club, Bryan Robson has said. Bryan recently revealed that he is amazed with the incredible impact the Portuguese has had at Old Trafford.
According to him, Bruno Fernandes’ work-rate and quality on the ball is simply superb, and his vision reminds him of Scholes.
Robson added that he really likes watching his Portuguese midfielder on the pitch because he is a great leader.
His words, “As soon as he came in, I think that I watched him in the first six or seven games and his work-rate and his quality on the ball, you can see that right from the start,”
“I couldn’t give him a higher accolade than when I said he’s probably the closest thing to Scholesy I’ve seen.”
“His vision, touch on the ball and always wanting to be on the ball, and then the quality of his finishing and passing. That’s why I’ve said he reminded me of Scholesy and I’ve seen nothing to change my opinion over the last year.”
“What I so like is watching Bruno, because he’s got quality on the ball and work-rate and everything.”
“But, what I like to see, when something doesn’t come off, or the ball goes dead, is you can see him talking to the players around him.”
“He’s trying to organise and is talking and whatever he’s saying, I’m not bothered about what he’s actually saying because you know it’ll either be encouragement or a rollicking for somebody.”
“This is what you have got to have if you want to win titles and win trophies. You’ve got to have those demands of each other. You’ve got to have that within your team and I can see Bruno has got that.”
