Man Utd boss Solskjaer: Fernandes has presence of Ronaldo; Greenwood will be fine

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has likened Bruno Fernandes to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Solskjaer was speaking today comparing Fernandes with the Juventus star.

He said, "He does have that presence (like Ronaldo). Just look at the results since he came in. He is a team player, which is key for us now. I wasn't looking forward to telling Bruno he was resting vs Leipzig, but he took it really well."

Solskjaer was also asked about Mason Greenwood amid reports the striker has lost his way this season.

He added: "We have got a tradition of helping youngsters develop and go through the ranks. As a club we have good tradition and we help players from difficult periods as well as good."
