Brazil midfielder, Fernandinho has come out to hail Manchester United after signing Ronaldo. He recently revealed that the signing surely boosts MUFC’s title chances this season.
According to him, signing world-class footballers like Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho definitely gives United a better squad and that is an advantage in the EPL.
Fernandinho, however, added that City still has the edge over United due to the standard of football at the club.
His words, “If you’re going to compare name by name, I think it’s very level. Both teams have a very good squad. Perhaps one or the other will wash away a very small advantage.”
“But I think that, due to the standard of play, the way we have played for five or six years with Pep [Guardiola], we have a defined standard of play, we know exactly how each player behaves or should behave on the pitch, we know about the quality of each player and how he can play the best role in the matches. Without a doubt, in this matter, we have a little more advantage.”
“Having practically the same players since 2017, it’s no wonder the club managed to win three titles in the last five. But without a doubt United, due to history, the weight of the shirt, the quality of the players, in a short period of time can reach the level we are at today.”
“I think that a lot of expectations were also raised with the possibility of him coming here.”
“No doubt this ends up affecting not only the fans, but also the people inside the club. But in the end, things didn’t work out, he didn’t close the deal, and ended up going to the red side of town. Life goes on.”
