Ighalo Speaks On Fernandes’ Future At Man Utd

Former Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo has revealed that his Manchester United team-mate Bruno Fernandes will get a lot better as he gets used to the Premier League.

Fernandes has been in fantastic form since moving from Sporting Lisbon to Man Utd back in January, scoring three goals and assisting four others.

His signing has coincided with Man Utd going on an 11-match unbeaten run and Ighalo can only see the 25-year-old getting better.

“It’s not my first time playing with Bruno. I played with him at Udinese back in 2010,” Ighalo told the BBC.

“He’s a great player. He has vision. He’s the guy who wants the ball because he can do something fantastic with it if you give him space.

 “He’s a good passer of the ball and he’s what this team needs to score goals.

“You’re still going to see more and better from him because he is still getting used to the Premier League.

“When he’s finally settled Bruno Fernandes is going to do well in this team.

“Before I came here I knew Manchester United were looking at him and I was hoping they would get him because he is a good player and I knew he was going to change the dynamic of the team.
