Bruno Fernandes since his arrival seems to have stolen Pogba’s place in Man United as the Portuguese talks on his relationship with the World Cup Winner
Bruno Fernandes has upon his arrival to Man United stolen the show as he is now featuring more as the Red Devil’s number 10, leaving Pogba to the other roles of the midfield.
Despite the Frenchman being always linked to controversies, Bruno Fernandes has disclosed he is happy to have the former Juventus man in same team.
Before his arrival from Sporting Lisbon, Paul Pogba used to be the center of attraction when one talks of United’s midfield.
Speaking on his relationship with the Pogba, Bruno said; “He speaks Italian and I speak Italian, from the beginning I knew him from Italy and he knows me. It was easy to work with him.
“Straight away when I arrived, he was injured. I saw him recovering and training on the pitch away from us.
“He was calling me sometimes when I was training and he said: ‘I’m seeing the games, I’m seeing your movement, don’t worry. When I’m fit, I will show you that I can find you. I see you move, you move to the right and to the left, in behind. When I come back, I will show you how I can find you a lot.’
“It shows you the confidence he gives to you, like when he comes back, he’s trying to help you become better and you help him to become better.”
The games have really turned out well for the duo although Bruno has been the playmaker all these while.
Speaking further, Bruno shared that he expects Pogba to continue being as relevant as the rest of the team in their quest to end the current campaign with trophies to their names.
Pogba spent time out after testing positive to the Corona Virus as the Portuguese revealed his teammate faced hard time recovering from the virus.
“We ended the [2019-20] season really well playing together. But of course the beginning of the season was hard for Paul because he had Covid,” he added.
“We know it’s not a joke, it’s hard to come back after 15 days isolated doing nothing.
“It was really difficult for Paul to find his form but I think he’s much better and feeling much more confident.
“The goal against West Ham gave him much more confidence. The team needs him and he has the quality to help us.”
Bruno Fernandes after just 47 games is just 7 goals behind Paul Pogba’s all time goal for United despite the former Juventus man already made 178 appearances for United.
