Manchester United Interim manager Ralf Rangnick trusts Bruno Fernandes‘The ideal position forward is central midfield. The Portugal international was mainly used as an attacking midfielder for most of his time at Old Trafford.
Bruno Fernandes was the creator of the force behind Manchester United’s 3-1 win Brentford on Wednesday night.
The 27-year-old provided two assists as the Reds returned to winning ways at the tournament. Fernandes continues to support Mason Greenwood’s goals and Marcus Rashford.
As a result, Ralf Rangnick believes Bruno Fernandes is more suited to a deeper role than always being used to support attack as he likes to find space. Talking about the position of Fernandes in the future, Rangnick speak:
“I think most of the top teams in Europe and also in England play with a 4-3-3. I think for him it’s better to be cornered in No 10 because then he has can be available in different areas, the yard, not just the center.
“For me, he’s not a winger, but I think in this position he can find space on his own, he can sniff out the moments where we have to play for him. him, and this 8th place is almost perfect. for him.”
Bruno Fernandes has had 4 goals in the last 2 matches. Before two assists against Brentford, he scored a brace against Aston Villa. However, that match ended 2-2 as Villa scored two late goals to salvage a point.
The former Sporting CP star has had a fantastic 2021-22 season, contributing 7 goals and 11 assists in all competitions.
Bruno Fernandes is also currently the club’s second-highest goalscorer, trailing only fellow Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo (14 goals).
