Maguire Praises Team-mate Bruno Fernandez Over His Impact At United
March. 09, 2020
Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire has hailed new signing Bruno Fernandes' impact at Old Trafford since arriving in January.
The Portuguese was involved in yet another goal after setting up Anthony Martial for the 30th-minute opener.
Fernandes is part of a stellar cast assembled by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that includes Maguire, David James and Odion Ighalo.
Maguire says that Fernandes has a huge personality and has brought in some aura.
"You can see what Bruno has brought since he has come in.” the England international said. “He has a big personality and he has an aura about him." On the derby win, Maguire thought that this was testament to United’s defensive solidity and new-found faith in themselves.
"Defensively we were solid and it should have been more than 1-0 in the first half,” the former Leicester City centre-back added.
"In the second half, we dug in deep, defended well as a team and deserved the three points. "Winning games brings belief. We believe we can push on from this. With the ball, we can do better.
The win, part of United’s first league double over City in a decade, takes Maguire’s men to fifth-place in the Premier League table, and a potential Champions League spot.
