Maguire blown away by Man Utd signing Bruno Fernandes: Already a leader

Harry Maguire believes Manchester United have a new leader in Bruno Fernandes.

Maguire was speaking after the Portuguese impressed in Monday's win over Chelsea in what was just his second appearance for the club.

"It's been a long time," said Maguire. "Obviously I got my first goal against Tranmere with my feet but I've missed a lot of chances this year and I knew it was a matter of time before I scored one.

"Obviously, Bruno helped with a nice delivery and hopefully there will be more to come between now and the end of the season.

"You can see what Bruno makes, the quality on the ball that he brings, his technical ability and he's a presence as well. He demands things off players, he's a leader and he's nice to have around the dressing room so long may that continue."
