Bruno Fernandes is in red hot form for Manchester United. He has already scored 34 goals in 61 games. He has completely transformed the side.

Thomas Tuchel said: “We tried to make it happen. It was when we just arrived. My first sporting director in Paris knew [Fernandes] very well. We watched more and more games about him. We fought hard to have a connection to him and to bring him to our team.”

“We tried and he went another way. It is bad for us that we have to play against him [on Sunday].”

Tuchel described the 26-year-old as “one of the best midfielders in the world”. He further said: “He was a big personality for Sporting and an effective goalscorer and an effective guy to make the other players around more dangerous.”

“To come from Portugal, from a competitive team – a big club but not from the strongest league – and step to one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League and the strongest league in Europe, and to have this kind of impact, I have nothing but the biggest respect for this guy.”

“He has [had] a huge, huge impact and to have this as a single person in football, you must be absolutely top-level because this is almost impossible. The impact he has had is indescribable and unbelievable.”
