Manchester United have been told that Bruno Fernandes’ best attribute is his passing by a Portuguese football expert. The Portugal international has flourished at Old Trafford since arriving from Sporting Lisbon during the January transfer window.
Manchester United have seen Fernandes flourish during his time in English football, with the 25-year-old managing two assists and a goal from four appearances so far.
And Portuguese football expert, Tom Kundert, believes the Portugal international’s best attribute is his passing.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Kundert said: “I’m always happy to talk about Bruno Fernandes. What a player!
“People will get to know him quickly, because he can do things very few players can.
“His long-range shooting is amazing, but his most outstanding asset is his passing – not only his execution but his vision.
“Sometimes you think ‘what… how did he even think about that pass?’ and you’re up in the stands! You’ve got a view of the whole pitch and even you can hardly see it.

“He sees it and pulls it off. In Portugal, you’ve got three teams that are so much better than the rest, so a lot of the time they’re facing massed defensive ranks.
“You need players who can do something a little bit different. They call them ‘a tin-opener’.
“He’s a perfect one.
“When there’s no way through he seems to find one, either with a spectacular goal or a fantastic pass.”
Kundert also lauded Fernandes’ attitude, adding: “If you take a more holistic view, his attitude is absolutely first-class.

“Sporting have been playing in a pressure-cooker situation for the last few seasons.
“They’ve had a bad time, falling further and further behind Benfica and Porto.
“It’s a massive club, which brings a lot of pressure, and a lot of players can’t really handle that.
“Bruno was exactly the opposite. It didn’t seem to matter how poor Sporting were. He always maintained a very high level.
“He’s definitely a leader.
“Also, you have to factor in that he’s had a very interesting career already, because he took the very unusual step of going to Italy as a teenager.
“I think it’s fair to say he’s carried Sporting over the last couple of years.
“He’s played about 60-odd games a season, every minute of every game, the Nations League. He went to the World Cup. That’s a lot of high-intensity football for three years solid.
“So I don’t think going to a new country will faze him.
“I really do think he’s one of these players, a bit like Cristiano [Ronaldo] – he’s made it his mission to get the very utmost out of his career.”
