Bruno Fernandes has been very impressive for Manchester United since he was signed from Sporting CP for a sum of €55million in January 2020. The Portuguese star has improved the play of Manchester United and is a core reason behind Manchester United’s surge up the table in the Premier League.
However, there is an impressive stat that put Bruno Fernandes ahead of Lionel Messi this season. According to a writing by Statman Dave on Instagram, Bruno Fernandes has played more successful through balls than any other players across the top 5 European leagues. The Portuguese even sits above Argentine superstar, Lionel Messi who currently sits on 13 through balls.
Former Manchester United defender, Paul Parker has given credit to Bruno Fernandes fit his efforts but also lamented that Manchester United has had to rely too much on his abilities to create an attack.
It’s the strength and presence of Bruno Fernandes that is making the difference for Manchester United.
Even with how much everyone thought of Eric Cantona and what he did, and they still talk about how great he was at the time, people didn’t look as Manchester United as a one-man team as they do at the moment,” Paul Parker stated.
He further explained that the Manchester United faithful are fearful of Bruno Fernandes being unavailable for a few games because of how much he is relied on in Manchester United’s attack.
