Former striker: ‘He makes Manchester United finally watchable again’

Dwight Yorke has been enjoying the impact of Bruno Fernandes at Manchester United. The Portuguese midfielder joined the Red Devils in a transfer from Sporting Portugal in January and York feels that the 25-year-old Fernandes has helped to raise the game of Manchester United as a collective.

Since Fernandes joined United in January, the Red Devils have remained undefeated in the Premier League for 16 games. Meanwhile, with the Portugal international on the midfield, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side has been having no difficulties in finding the net with Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood scoring loads of goals.

Former United striker Yorke told JOE : “The fact that we are unbeaten in 16 games now, that’s a run we haven’t had for maybe three or four years. And of course he’s got the addition of Bruno Fernandes, who’s hit the ground running and made an instant impact, which we needed.”

“We needed something to lift us. It’s a little bit early to get above your station, but it certainly looks a lot more exciting and it’s looked a lot more watchable – rather than the way it used to be before. You can actually now sit down to watch a game of football knowing that, at least we’ve got players who will attack defenders and try to score.”
