BRUNO TRIUMPHS YET AGAIN
Our new playmaker has enjoyed a remarkable start to his career in M16, and finished his maiden United campaign with 12 goals from 22 appearances. Eight of that tally were penalties – Bruno is yet to miss one.
But perhaps even more impressive has been his effect on others: his assists have breathed new life into United’s other attacking players, while his drive and determination have helped create greater consistency with results.
All of these factors were in strong evidence during the month of August. As United approached the end of an almost impossibly long season, Fernandes was given a night off for the second leg of our last-16 Europa League tie with LASK, but then he returned to the fore in a big way.
