Bruno Fernandes has completed 12 months of service at Manchester United and says he is planning on spending “many years” at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese playmaker was snapped up by the Red Devils on January 29, 2020 from Sporting CP in Portugal, having been courted by several leading European clubs.
Few knew what to expect from a deal at that stage, but United’s faith has been rewarded with Fernandes starring during his first year in England to become a talismanic presence for United.
He was unable to inspire them to three points in his latest outing, with the Red Devils playing out a 0-0 draw at Arsenal, but there remains the promise of more to come from him.
“Definitely not the result I wanted to celebrate my first year as a Red, but we’ll keep working to improve,” Fernandes posted on social media in the aftermath of the goalless stalemate in north London.
“It’s an absolute honour to play football with the Man Utd badge on my chest. The history of this football club was built over wins, many wins. I came here to help on continuing that legacy, and I won’t rest until I do it.
“I want to thank all the fans for your outstanding support. Hopefully, this was only the first of many years together. Glory, glory Man United!”
