Man Utd legend Paul Scholes hails
Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has had to admit that Bruno Fernandes is a better player than he was at Old Trafford. It comes after another performance for the Red Devils, this time against Leicester where he scored and grabbed an assist.
After yet another stellar display from Fernandes, United legend Scholes admitted he is second-best to the midfielder.
It comes after yet another brilliant performance this weekend from their Portuguese superstar, this time against Leicester.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men were nowhere near their best but Fernandes put in a now-typical display.
He set up Marcus Rashford for the opener with a brilliant toe-poked assist before scoring in the second-half in a 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium.
Harvey Barnes and an own goal from Axel Tuanzebe saw the spoils shared between the two teams.
But for Fernandes, it was yet another 90 minutes that exemplified his importance to the first-team.
“What he’s doing is phenomenal, really,” Scholes told United’s official website.
“I think if you look, since he’s been [here], United would be top of the league if they won their game in hand, with more points than Liverpool, which is strange to think really because they’ve had such a bad start to the season.
“Well, you thought it was a bad start to the season, but they’re still right in there and I think they can only get better.
“The numbers he’s produced are just ridiculous, let’s hope he carries on.
The 26-year-old has a combined number of 31 goals and assists in 28 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils.
“He’s better than me. He’s different to me,” Scholes added.
“He scores more goals than me, he creates more goals than me.
“I’d like to play with him, probably behind him would be alright. But no, he’s been sensational, a big difference.
“I think before he came to the team, United could hardly create a chance with some of the stuff they were playing, but now they look like they can score three, four or five goals every game.”
