Man Utd great Robson: Fernandes just like Scholes

Manchester United great Bryan Robson has likened Bruno Fernandes to Paul Scholes.

Fernandes has made an instant impact since his January arrival from Sporting CP.

Robson says: “No question, he's the modern day Paul Scholes.

“He's brilliant at finding little pockets of space.

“Then he's got the same vision to hit those great balls that Scholesy used to hit — and he's also got a goal in his locker."

Robson, who played over 400 times for United, also believes manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be applauded for his work before the season halted.

He said: “Ole's lads were on an 11–game unbeaten run.

“You can see that he's improved the atmosphere."
