Real Sociedad coach Imanol: Fernandes makes difference for Man Utd

Real Sociedad coach Imanol Alguacil admits keeping Bruno Fernandes quiet will go a long way to defeating Europa League opponents Manchester United.

Imanol is well aware of the influence Fernandes has at United.

He said,"There is no doubt that there is a differential player, like Bruno Fernandes, but there is also Cavani, Rashford, Greenwood ... I am not going to name them all, they are all of such great quality that now Bruno must be highlighted, for his moment of form, but only by focusing on him we would not stop Manchester, if they have their day.

"They have a lot of potential in all their lines."

Imanol also said: "We are two teams that like to have the ball, to be brave, we have fast people ... I think it will be a goal eliminator. I think it will be a great game and we will see if it falls on our side and the tie comes alive in Manchester. I would like to be able to face them with our weapons, playing as we are."
