Fernandes may be a Man Utd hero such as Cantona and Scholes – Ince

The Portuguese signature made a good impression on the former Red Devils midfielder, who believes he can emulate some heroes of Old Trafford

Paul Ince believes that Manchester United’s new star Bruno Fernandes can reach the same position as club heroes Eric Cantona and Paul Scholes.

The Portuguese international stormed the Theater of Dreams from its € 55m (£ 47m / $ 60m) move from Sporting during the January transfer window.

Fernandes already has three goals and three assists in eight Red Devils appearances – playing an important role in the club’s current 10 game unbeaten.

The 25-year-old made a decisive contribution to Manchester United’s 1-0 victory over City with the help of Anthony Martial’s opener, and Ince feels that the Portuguese director is showing he can match some of the club’s greats.

“[Fernandes’] it’s been great since he got to the side, and even yesterday when he didn’t do much, what he did was high quality, “Ince told Paddy Power.” That ball against Anthony Martial was exceptional.

“Fans are taking away, and I try not to, but I can definitely see why they are.

“Every club, every fan group wants to have a hero, and it will be for Man United.

“When he goes around corners, fans go wild for him, they love him, he can be a real hero.

“I’m talking about Paul Scholes or Eric Cantona – he may be one of those types of heroes for the club. I’m not saying in terms of performance or football level, but United hasn’t had a hero in their team for very, very long. time. It may be that.

“He’s doing everything right right now, including the” shh “gesture to Pep Guardiola, which will always be a surefire way to win over fans. It’s nice to also see someone joining a little character.”

The Red Devils are currently fifth in the Premier League standings – three points adrift of Chelsea in fourth place – as they attempt to return to the Champions League after another season in the Europa League.

Ince believes it is important that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s secondary qualifications are ahead of the most important continental competition in Europe and that the team is showing significant signs of improvement after a tough stretch.

“It looks like Man United may have turned a corner kick, but the most important thing for them is still to make the Champions League,” said Ince. “Whether it’s fourth or fifth place or winning the Europa League.

“They shouldn’t even aim at either of them, they should aim at both. It should be – as a team we can make the top four, and we can win Europe – neither.

“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has previously cut and changed his teams, it seems he is not sure who his best starting XI is. But, now, we are starting to see some consistency and this is reflected in the performance that we are seeing in field.

“Tactically, Ole has taken the place of the Manchester Derby. It was the first time I remember having fun watching United.”

Manchester United’s next game will come in the Europa League 16 group stage, when they play Thursday against LASK Linz in Austria.
