The Portugal international has been simply superb since his move to Man Utd from Sporting Lisbon in January, and it’s clear Ferdinand is well aware of how important he’s become for the club.

Speaking about Fernandes after United’s win over West Brom, BT Sport pundit Ferdinand said, as quoted by the Metro: “Everything comes through him.

“He’s a player who creates and takes on responsibility. It seems like he likes that.”

Another MUFC legend Paul Scholes was also full of praise for Fernandes, though he also struck a more negative tone as he questioned where this team would be without the 26-year-old.

Scholes, also speaking on BT Sport and quoted by the Metro, said: “You do wonder where Man Utd would be without Fernandes. Before Bruno came in, United couldn’t create a chance.”
