Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has heaped praise on star man Bruno Fernandes one year on from his £47 million transfer.

Today marks exactly one year since Fernandes joined the club from Sporting Lisbon.

He’s since become a key player for the Red Devils, registering an enviable 46 goal contributions in 52 appearances.

The Portuguese international is set to be an integral player as United search for their 14th Premier League title this season.

Speaking about the midfielder ahead of their clash with Arsenal, Solskjaer said: “Brilliant. From day one he’s come in and wanted to affect the environment, the playing environment, the staff. He’s been a great addition.

“He’s such a humble human being, working hard and I think everyone has seen what he’s done on the pitch.

“Very pleased with his first year and long may it continue. The higher up in the league, the more pressure there will be on us and on him.

“Now the limelight is on him but I’m sure he’ll handle that pressure fine.

“He’s got his opinion, he’s a winner. He’s not just going to let a game pass away and talk about it after. He wants to affect it there and then.

“He’s so passionate about winning and he knows his football, he knows his stuff. He watches every single game there is on telly, especially the big games.

“And if you ask him ‘did you watch that last night?’ he’s always seen the game, so he’s going to make the most of his career, that’s for sure.”

Fernandes has made 20 league appearances this term, scoring 11 goals.

He recently scored a great free kick to give United the victory over rivals Liverpool in the FA Cup.

Those kind of performances have made him a hero at Old Trafford already, despite the lack of fans at the moment.

He will be hoping for a big impact in the match against Arsenal. United travel to the Emirates at 17:30 in the Premier League.
