Man Utd fullback Shaw: I told Bruno 'I don't know how you do it'

Manchester United fullback Luke Shaw has hailed the impact of Bruno Fernandes this season.

Speaking with adidas, Shaw joked that he would love to rival Fernandes' returns in terms of goals and assists — and revealed a conversation with the Portuguese about how he scores even when he's playing poorly.

"We do talk a bit, but honestly the guy's numbers are unbelievable, what he's doing and how he's doing it," Shaw said.

"I said to him 'Bruno, I'll be honest, you weren't great [against Real Sociedad] but you scored two goals. I just don't know how you do it!'

"I think people in football understand the game and how important that player is, who doesn't get many assists or goals, but a lot of the outside world is all about stats. It's understandable because they watch it and they want to see those things, but you've just got to deal with it."
