Bruno Fernandes can be a United hero, Pogba won’t get in the team – Paul Ince

The former Man United captain says Bruno Fernandes has been outstanding since arriving at Old Trafford, and has the makings of a club legend

Bruno Fernandes


Bruno Fernandes has been fantastic since he came into the side, and even yesterday when he didn’t do that much, what he did do was top quality. That ball into Anthony Martial was outstanding.

Fans are getting carried away, and I try not to, but I can certainly see why they are.
Every club, every set of fans want to have a hero, and he’s going to be that for Man United.

I’m talking a Paul Scholes or an Eric Cantona – he can be one of those types of heroes for the club. I’m not saying in terms of performances, or level of football, but United haven’t had a hero in their team for a long, long time.

He can be that.

He’s doing everything right at the moment, including the ‘shh’ gesture to Pep Guardiola, which was always going to be a sure way to win over the fans. It’s good to see someone joining with a bit of character, too.

Paul Pogba

Fans thought Paul Pogba was going to be the star, but look how that panned out.
If he still wants to leave I’d say it would be far easier for Ole to do so now that Bruno is around. It doesn’t feel like they need him anymore.

His truly great games have been few and far between, so the current situation could suit club and player.

If he does come back before the end of the season, he’s not even going to get in the team. He’s going to have to fight for his place – if he even gets one.
