Diogo Dalot insists Bruno Fernandes has a lot to offer in the Manchester United team.

Diogo Dalot has suggested that Bruno Fernandes is essentially a foundation on which manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is going to rebuild the Manchester United team.

The 25-year-old midfielder played his first match in his new colors in Man United’s goalless draw against Wolves on Saturday’s Premier League fixture. Although his debut might not have worked out as he would have hoped, Fernandes was awarded as the Man of the Match by the club.

Diogo Dalot feels his fellow countryman brings a lot to the table for Man United. And, as per Goal, the fullback also insisted that Fernandes is used to handling huge pressure on himself.

“The players knew Bruno was a very good player of course,” Dalot said.

“It’s different seeing him abroad and then seeing him in training every day. He’s going to bring us a lot. I think he’s going to be a very good player for us and he’s going to help us build this team.

“He’s an experienced player. He played abroad a lot of years and you knew he could come here and do a great job.”
