The Portuguese midfielder revealed that he was placed in center-back during the start of his career and played impressively. He player moved to Man Utd from Sporting CP during the winter transfer. It didn’t take him long to make an impact in coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad at Old Trafford.
After the match MU won Everton 3-1 in round 8 of the FA Cup, Bruno Fernandes said he could finish to complete the hat-trick. But he chose to pass the ball to Edinson Cavani.
He had 18 goals and 13 assists after 33 matches for Man Utd so far. In the Premier League this season, Fernandes has never been removed from the starting lineup.
He scored 5 goals and had 3 assists after 7 matches. However, coach Solskjaer still has a headache with finding a way to combine him with Paul Pogba and rookie Donny van de Beek in midfield.
“I’m really good. There’s a coach who once said to me: ‘If you want to be a good player, kick it. midfielder If you want to be top player, you have to play at center-back, ” Bruno Fernandes told UTD Podcast.
He added: “I’m not sure. At that time, I didn’t like playing in that position. Everyone says I’m a good defender. They say I’m smart and cover both sides well.”
Some sources said that Greenwood is not aware of the things he needs to sacrifice to become a good player. Young stars MU more and more fall into the game, after becoming famous.
Before that, Greenwood had been involved in a scandal that brought strangers into the hotel where the British were stationed. The 19-year-old striker with Phil Foden was immediately dropped by coach Gareth Southgate.
While Foden still maintained his form in the Man City shirt and was called back to the team, Greenwood was on a decline. At the last meeting for the UEFA Nations League, the MU player was not named.
