Fernandes was surprised by Rashford, pointed out who is the best footballer he has played with
New Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has admitted that he was very impressed with Marcus Rashford when he started training with the club and was surprised by the qualities of the 22-year-old striker. After the arrival of the Portuguese midfielder in the team, the Red Devils have raised their level and are in a series of 18 games without a loss, fighting for participation in the Champions League.
I think that Rashford can have incredible speed with amazing qualities - Fernandes admits to BT Sport - it`s hard to have that speed and still be able to do the right things, shoot at the right moment, pass, be able toto dribble. He really surprised me a lot. Of course, I was aware of his qualities, because he was already one of the best young players in the world.
The 25-year-old Portuguese spoke of the former United footballer and his teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, calling him the best footballer he has ever played with: Cristiano, more in the early years of his career, was one of the most talentedplayers in the world. I think he has changed his game in recent years, but he still remains very difficult for the defenders and is the best player I have played with.
Fernandes is expected to be in the center of the field again from the first minute for United in the match against Crystal Palace tonight. The Red Devils failed to climb to third place in the standings after conceding an equalizer in the 96th minute in the previous round against Southampton and will now seek a mandatory victory to keep hopes of ranking in the top 4.
