Fernandes has netted already 47 goals and 36 assists in just 108 appearances across competitions in his short time at the club.
Bruno Fernandes joined Manchester United two years ago today.
Speaking to the club website, Bruno Fernandes reflected on his two years premier League giants Manchester United and said:
“Yes, it been quick. I think, obviously, for the time that we are having at the moment, with the Covid and everything, time flies a little bit more because we don’t spend a lot of time out of the home.
“So it’s come quick but honestly it’s been two good years.
Bruno Fernandes also emphasized the importance of fans and what it was like to be without them during the pandemic. Bruno was asked if he was disappointed to have had to play without the fans for such a long period of time, to which he said:
“No, because, for me, the dream was to come to the Premier League and see the atmosphere in the stadiums. Obviously, in our own stadium, with our own fans then, straight away, after four or five games, I don’t have the fans anymore.
“It was difficult, of course, because the atmosphere we create is always unbelievable. For us, as players, to play in front of 75,000 in Old Trafford is something unbelievable, so it’s something impossible to describe.
“So I think them [being] back is the best we can have from this season.”
