Bruno Fernandes picks one Man United player who deserves more recognition

Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes feels teammate Marcus Rashford does not get enough credit for his efforts at the club. 

The striker has played in all matches since the restart and was on target from the spot as United dismantled Bournemouth 5-2 last time out, his 20th strike of the current campaign. 

The 22-year-old has been one of the standout players for the Reds this season, despite spending weeks on the sidelines due to a back injury. 

Fernandes, who arrived in January from Sporting Lisbon, says the striker has been one of the key players, even though many don't' seem to realize it. 

“Like you saw last night [Thursday], Mason [Greenwood] scored a beautiful goal again and Anthony [Martial] and Marcus did very well,” Fernandes told the club's website ahead of Monday's game against Southampton at Old Trafford.

“I think everyone is talking about Marcus not scoring a lot of goals but he is doing an amazing job.

“The game he is playing now, maybe he is not achieving his goals and everything but, with everything we are doing now, he will achieve more goals and more assists. In the games, in complete football, because football is not just about goals and assists, it is about the team and Marcus is playing very well for the team.

“I hope Marcus can find more goals because he deserves it for the work he is doing for the team, and nobody sees it because everyone sees the goals and who scores and assists. The work he is doing for the team is amazing.

“Marcus was injured for a long time so it’s difficult to find that confidence again, to do things like a shoot from far out. But he is doing an amazing job for the group and I think he deserves credit for this.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men could move up to third if they beat the Saints if Leicester can drop points against Bournemouth on Sunday night.
