Ferguson: Fernandes is what Man Utd have been missing 'in last few years'

Bruno Fernandes is exactly the kind of player Manchester United have been missing in the last few years, according to legendary former manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

The attacking midfielder, 26, has enjoyed a superb second season at Old Trafford, scoring an astonishing 28 goals and laying on 18 assists across 57 matches in all competitions this campaign, fully justifying his £65million transfer in January 2020.

And Ferguson told BBC Radio Manchester that the 27-cap Portuguese international's confidence, creativity and composure meant he represents exactly what the Red Devils have needed in recent years.

Ferguson said: 'Well, he's been fantastic, the lad.

'He's scored important goals and even when he's taking his penalty kicks he's very, very confident about them and I can't even think if a goalkeeper's got anywhere near his penalty kicks.

'So he's calm, his shots from outside the box are always a threat and he's got the thing that United have really needed in the last few years with his ability to make a pass in the final third.

'It opens up defences and I think that's important.'

United travel to Wolves on the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday knowing second place is already secured.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will then contest the Europa League showpiece against Unai Emery's Villarreal in Gdansk, Poland on Wednesday.
