Manchester United’s attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes, says his combination with Paul Pogba is yet to show its maximum quality.
Alongside Pogba, Fernandes immediately became a talisman at Old Trafford since joining in January 2020. After the €55m from Sporting Lisbon, the 26-year-old attacker has delivered a wonderful 36 goals and 22 assists in 72 games.
Bruno believes his staggering success in a red shirt would not have really been possible without Pogba.
"My relationship with Paul since the beginning, as I met Paul already in Italy, I already know him with much, much relation but, of course, we have a good relationship,” he said via Goal.
"I think, on the pitch, there is still to come the best for both of us. We can do much better together. I think we are doing better now because people and players are concerned about who they might mark – we have Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in the same places, the same pockets.
"Sometimes it is difficult for players to find who to mark and who to give freedom and so it’s good for the team. That is the best for us because we know we can help the team playing together.
"I think when you play with the best, your best comes out also. For me, playing with Paul, it’s playing with one of the best players in the world. So I think the best of me comes out and it’s helped me to have those kind of qualities.
"I think Paul is one of the players who has a good spirit, good moments in the dressing room. He’s a really funny guy and can always have something good to say to make people laugh,” the former Sampdoria and Udinese star concluded.
Up next for Fernandes and the Red Devils is a trip to Eland Road to battle Marcelo Biesla's Leeds United in league action this weekend.
