McAteer: I want Man Utd star Fernandes to join Liverpool

Liverpool hero Jason McAteer admits he regrets seeing Bruno Fernandes playing for Manchester United.

United's form has taken a drastic upturn since the restart, which McAteer believes can be attributed to Fernandes' arrival.

"Manchester United were in disarray not long ago," he told Racing Post. "There seemed to be a lack of characters in the dressing room but the lockdown now looks to have provided them with a welcome break and they have benefited from some work on the training ground.

"They have started back well and Bruno Fernandes has been brilliant.

"I saw him play against Liverpool for Sporting Lisbon in the summer in America and he was brilliant. I was hoping Liverpool would sign him and he's been a huge influence.

"He has made Paul Pogba look a better player and you can tell the younger members of the team have been given more confidence.

He added: "Much of their rejuvenation is down to their Portuguese midfielder."
