Juventus hero Marchisio: I wish Fernandes had joined a big Serie A club

Juventus hero Claudio Marchisio is sorry Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes isn't playing in Italy.

Fernandes spent time with Novara, Udinese and Sampdoria during his career.

Marchisio said: “It would have been nice to see him in a big Italian club.

"In Udine he was limited by (Antonio) Di Natale, then he did well in Genoa but no one had faith in his talent, which exploded in England."

Fernandes spent five years in Italy before returning to Portugal with Sporting CP.
