Bruno Fernandes picks one Man United player who deserves more recognition

Marcus Rashford deserves more credit for his "amazing" teamwork for Manchester United despite his goal return drying up, Bruno Fernandes says.

The youngster has shined during his breakout season after manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sold Romelu Lukaku and promoted the forward to the first-team set up.

Rashford reached 20 for the season in all competitions with a penalty in the 5-2 Premier League win over Bournemouth at Old Trafford.

'Football is not just about goals and assists - it is about the team and Marcus is playing very well for the team'.

United are, however, eager to see a man who has already become a firm fan favourite take his game to even greater heights in the months and years to come.

"He's 18 and of course he will get better".

'He is a natural footballer and has been in the academy since he was a little boy. "They knew our ambition, what we want here, the environment we want here, which will then be the foundation for moving up the table".


Speaking to United's official website, Pogba praised Solskjaer and aimed a dig at Mourinho in the process.

Mason is looking more and more like a man, he's one of the best - if not the best finisher I have worked with and seen.

However, Solskjaer feels Greenwood is of a different calibre, having spent the three-month coronavirus-enforced break to put on a reported 3kg of muscle mass. "[He has] no fear, just wants to go and play football".

"I'm not anxious about Mason this season".

"This is like a title for us because this is what we can achieve at this moment and so we need to fight for this".

Paul Pogba says life at Manchester United "is about trophies", with the World Cup victor urging the FA Cup and Europa League-chasing Red Devils to ensure that an opportunity to land two pieces of silverware does not "go away".

He was named Premier League player of the month for June - an award he also won for February - while also claiming goal of the month for his volleyed finish at the end of a swift counter-attack in United's 3-0 victory at Brighton on June 30.
