Ex-Sporting CP coach Silas: Man Utd midfielder Fernandes similar to Scholes

Former Sporting CP coach Silas has likened Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes to Paul Scholes.

Silas, who signed Fernandes for the Portuguese club, can see similarities.

Silas told Marca: “Bruno is a footballer who is not easy to stop.

“He is not like Messi who can dribble past three players and take the pressure off you.

“Bruno's threat is when you are not noticing him.

“The ball is on the wing and when it falls to him and there is no one in front of him, he hits it really well with the right and the left.

“He reminds me of Scholes."
