Bruno Fernandes is more of Paul Scholes than Christiano Ronaldo - Ole Solskjaer reveals new signing strength

Bruno Fernandes is more of Scholes than Ronaldo - Ole Solskjaer reveals new signing strength

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed the strength of club new signing Bruno Fernandes.

The 25-year-old joined the club from Sporting CP and has been compared to Manchester United for man superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed the attacking midfielder is more of Manchester United legendary midfielder Paul Scholes rather than Cristiano Ronaldo.

'Cristiano is unique,”  Solskjaer said.

'We hope that Bruno will have a fantastic career at Man United, but to start comparing him with Cristiano isn't fair on the boy.'

'He is a goal-scoring and assisting midfielder, a little bit like Paul Scholes. He can strike a ball fantastically. He has got such a wonderful technique, but he also is going to get assists from set-plays and from his range of passes.'

'He is a similar type to Scholesy - fiery, passionate, hates losing and he's got the same number on the back of the shirt.'

'I think he is another piece in the jigsaw. I'm sure he will give us that X-factor we've been missing at times this year.'

'He can do absolutely everything. He's my size so he probably isn't a target man in the box, but he is such a good footballer.'

'He can play in a three-man midfield, as a No.10, off the side, and in a diamond. We'll give him time to find his best position.'

'He's fit to play and he will definitely be in the squad. He's had a few hectic days now - his little daughter was three-years-old yesterday - so I don't know how much he will be involved.'
