Man Utd midfielder Pereira: Fernandes has made difference

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has hailed the impact of January signing Bruno Fernandes.

Pereira has highlighted the difference he's made since joining from Sporting Lisbon.

He said, “He has a lot of quality. He joined the team and has already shown that. Of course, it's very good to have another player who speaks Portuguese, who can mix with us there. We don't want to hit our heads on the pitch when there's one who doesn't understand us.

“So Bruno joining is already making a difference. I didn't know that he played a little behind at Sporting. But I think it's like when you join a team, play more forward and take a little less responsibility for defending, you feel more free. That's what he's showing. And I think it helped him a lot. And I think the more confidence, he'll be able to play in any place in midfield."
