Roma boss lavishes praise on Man United duo of Rashford and Fernandes

AS Roma boss Paulo Fonseca has described Man United duo of Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes as amazing ahead of their Thursday night meeting at Old Trafford.

Fonseca believes they will have to keep the duo at bay if they are to come with anything out of the first leg with Roma having struggled in the Serie A this season.

“They have amazing players who can decide in one situation one game and we have to pay attention to these individual situations of Manchester United. I think Rashford is an amazing, amazing player. He's having a great, great season. But I think Man United as a whole team is strong,” Fonseca told ESPN.

Adding on the abilities of Fernandes, Fonseca said: “Bruno played many years here in Italy and just when he returned to Portugal with Sporting, where he had a great season. The people understood the real value from what he did at Sporting, it was amazing. And what he's doing in Manchester is also amazing. He's a player with a strong personality, he wants to win all the time.”

While they have struggled in the league, Roma has been shining in the Europa League but will be aware of a United side who have been in rather a formidable form recently.
