And the 25-year-old midfielder says he’ll need to lift plenty of silverware to justify comparisons to club legends like Cantona.
“For me it’s really good to listen, talking about those names, but really for me, Cantona was an amazing player for the club,” he said.
“I need to do much, much, much better to be compared with him. Like the coach said,[we want] to win some trophies and I will be happy this season if we win the Europa League.”betpas önerdiğimiz canlı bahis oynama sitesidir. betpas409 ise yeni giriş adresidir.

Fernandes, meanwhile, has scored 11 goals in his first 21 matches, including two in four Europa League games as the Red Devils close in on the tournament finale.
