Ole Lauds Praise On Bruno Fernandes

Bruno Fernandez

Bruno Fernandes was described as a mix between Paul Scholes and Juan Sebastian Veron by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after inspiring Manchester United’s 3-0 home win over Watford.

The Portuguese’s performance, pulling the strings in the centre of the park, led United manager Solskjaer to compare his new signing to two midfield greats.

Fernandes opened the scoring from the penalty spot for his first United goal and also added an assist for an excellent third goal scored by Mason Greenwood which put the result beyond doubt.

The 25-year-old has impressed since joining the club last month, and with his acquisition, it looks like United have made a shrewd move in the transfer market.

Ole Praises Anthony Martial After Europa League Goal

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Anthony Martial can be a 20-goal striker for Manchester United after the Frenchman salvaged a Europa League draw in Bruges.

Martial’s equaliser makes United favourites to reach the last 16 of the competition when they meet Club Brugge again at Old Trafford next week.

It also took him to 14 goals for the season following his header against Chelsea in United’s 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

Marcus Rashford has 19 so far this season but Solskjaer thinks Martial can go one further after moving in from the left wing to replace his injured teammate.

Ole

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expressed relief after Harry Maguire netted his first Premier League goal for the club – and insisted that the star didn’t deserve to be dismissed against Chelsea.

The club captain guided home Bruno Fernandes’ corner to seal a crucial victory at Stamford Bridge, but was fortunate to escape a red card after appearing to kick out at Michy Batshuayi.

After his side moved within three points of fourth spot, Solskjaer backed the England international and highlighted an ongoing joke between the pair.

Speaking after yet another shutout for United, Solskjaer told Sky Sports:

Love United Hate Glazers

Manchester United will spend heavily again this summer after admitting it will take more than the signing of Bruno Fernandes to turn them into title contenders.

Fernandes moved to Old Trafford last month in a deal worth up to £67.8million after United paid £145m for Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Dan James last summer.

United chief Ed Woodward accepts that more investment will be needed to revive Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad, and acknowledged that this summer will be a key period in the process.

In his introductory remarks to a recent fans’ forum, Woodward said:

United failed to score for the third time in six matches since the start of the year as they lost 2-0 to Liverpool at Anfield in Rashford’s absence on Sunday, remaining fifth in the table and falling 30 points behind the Premier League leaders.

Confirming the severity of the injury to 19-goal Rashford, Solskjaer rued: ‘It’s just an unfortunate situation.

It appears that Pogba is keen to reunite with Antonio Conte, since the two worked so well together at Juventus.

The speculation over the World Cup winner’s future at Old Trafford has not died down during his absence from the pitch and the newspaper claims Inter have the makeweight to be in pole position for the former Bianconeri’s signature.

Martinez is valued at around €80million, while United insist Pogba is worth €150m.

Solskjaer Wants ‘One Or Two’ Additions In January

Ole

Manchester United are targeting ‘one or two’ new faces in January, revealed manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United’s top four hopes were dashed on Wednesday night following a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal and attention quickly turned to transfer business on the first day of the January window.

Injuries are becoming a major issue for United, particularly in central midfield, and while Solskjaer remained coy on targets, he admitted that the club are on the hunt for a couple of additions this month.

‘Well you can see the squad and yeah, one or two additions could do nicely,’ he said.

OGS Praises Fred After Man United Win

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hailed midfielder Fred as the unlikely Manchester United hero firing them towards the Champions League.

Fred took centre-stage in a 2-0 win at Turf Moor with Paul Pogba absent and Scott McTominay out for at least three weeks with a knee injury.

The much-maligned £52million Brazilian, mocked on TV by United legend Roy Keane, was one of United’s stand-out performers as they made it one defeat in eight and moved to within a point of fourth-place Chelsea.
