Giggs: Fernandes has had Cantona effect on Man Utd

Wales coach Ryan Giggs has highlighted the impact Bruno Fernandes has had on his Manchester United teammates.

Fernandes, 25, has been one of United's standout performers since his £47million arrival from Sporting Lisbon in the January transfer window.

Giggs told MUFC Group Chat: "They've improved the team and the dressing room and obviously, in Fernandes, we've seen over the years the effect one player can sometimes have.

"You talk about the Cantonas, the van Persies… and I'm not comparing him yet to them but he's made other players play better and he's given everyone a lift.

"I still think we need four or five players but we're definitely going in the right direction."
