Bruno Fernandes is not a penalty merchant – this stat proves it once and for all

Bruno Fernandes is a penalty merchant. This is a well-established fact, right? Wrong.

Just because the Manchester United midfielder is one of the best spot-kick takers on the planet, it’s held against him.

There’s a misconception that his only contributions come from 12-yards, but it couldn’t be further from the truth.

Statman Dave has moved to debunk that nation with a stat he sent out during Everton v Man United this afternoon.

You can call him a penalty merchant all you like, but if anything, he’s a goal merchant.

Fernandes is one of the deadliest central players in the world – and rival fans are just jealous at United have him.

We ought to be admiring his brilliance and continual goal contributions, rather than criticising him.

Oftentimes, we don’t learn until a player leaves the Premier League and performs on the biggest stage elsewhere.

Let’s not make the same mistake with Fernandes. He’s world-class.
