Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told fans to expect Bruno Fernandes to be more of a Paul Scholes kind of midfielder, rather than a Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ole is looking forward to an amazing technical ability that will decide games like that of the legendary Scholes from the Portuguese international.
According to the Norweigan, he hopes that Fernandes will have a great career at his new club because he sees him as another piece in the jigsaw that is ready to go.
He added that he plans to give the former Sporting Lisbon player time to find his best position in the team.
His words, “Cristiano is unique,”
“We hope that Bruno will have a fantastic career at Man United, but to start comparing him with Cristiano isn’t fair on the boy.
“He is a goal-scoring and assisting midfielder, a little bit like Paul Scholes. He can strike a ball fantastically. He has got such a wonderful technique, but he also is going to get assists from set-plays and from his range of passes.
“He is a similar type to Scholesy – fiery, passionate, hates losing and he’s got the same number on the back of the shirt.
“I think he is another piece in the jigsaw. I’m sure he will give us that X-factor we’ve been missing at times this year.
“He can do absolutely everything. He’s my size so he probably isn’t a target man in the box, but he is such a good footballer.
“He can play in a three-man midfield, as a No.10, off the side and in a diamond. We’ll give him time to find his best position.
“He’s fit to play and he will definitely be in the squad. He’s had a few hectic days now – his little daughter was three-years-old yesterday – so I don’t know how much he will be involved.”
