Should Man United be concerned? Bruno Fernandes makes rare stellar performances for Portugal without Cristiano Ronaldo in the squad

Should Man United be concerned?  Bruno Fernandes makes rare stellar performances for Portugal without Cristiano Ronaldo in the squad

Fernandes and Man United

There is no doubt that Bruno Fernandes has been Manchester United’s standout player since his arrival from Sporting in January 2020.

The attacking midfielder has scored an impressive 43 goals and provided 25 assists in just 83 outings for the Red Devils, with his exploits in the 2North Dakota halfway through the 2019/20 season, one of the only reasons United were able to secure Champions League football that season.

Fernandes’ excellent form has continued into the current campaign, with the 26-year-old scoring a hat-trick against Leeds United in the opening weekend, and none of them were even from a penalty!

Fernandes stars without Ronaldo

But while Fernandes has been a star for Manchester United, the 26-year-old has never been a key figure for his side, Portugal.

Before Tuesday, Fernandes had scored just five and assisted five in 35 starts for A Selecao, a lousy comeback compared to his results at both United and Sporting.

Fernandes would have a rather dismal Euro 2020 as well, being substituted after just 64 minutes in Portugal’s 4-2 loss to Germany before coming off the bench against France and Belgium.

It is not known one hundred percent why Fernandes has been so poor for Portugal over the years.

However, Tuesday seems to suggest that Fernandes’ ability to shine for his country is hampered by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo would not participate in Portugal’s World Cup qualifier against Azerbaijan after being suspended last week against the Republic of Ireland.

Fernandes, for his part, would start in Baku and make one of his best exhibitions for his country.

The United man controlled the game and created countless opportunities, including preparing Bernardo Silva for the opener.

Then he got the previous assist for Andre Silva’s 31.S tone minute strike

Of course, the fact that Fernandes does a rare star display for Portugal without Ronaldo might just be a coincidence, but Man United fans will no doubt have hope that Fernandes’ displays for their club are not affected by the arrival of Ronaldo.
