Berbatov explains the one way Man Utd maestro can improve

Former striker Dimitar Berbatov has suggested the one way in which Man Utd playmaker Bruno Fernandes can improve his game.

The Portuguese international has been influential since joining Man Utd in January.

He’s achieved 14 goal contributions in 13 matches this campaign and scored two in the recent win over Istanbul Basaksehir.

The player has given Man Utd a new dimension going forward, forming a great relationship with his teammates in the process.

But former United striker Berbatov believes there’s one way Fernandes can improve.

Writing on his Betfair column, Berbatov said: “Fernandes has impressed me so much and the only weakness I see in him is his defensive side. He can improve a bit there.

“He’s an attacking midfielder, though, who creates chances, scores goals and up the pitch is where he has his power. That’s why I think it’s good to have someone in the team to cover for him.

“Other than his defensive weakness, he is doing everything that the manager wants from him and, with 20 goals since he joined in January, he’s certainly scored more than people expected.

“He is phenomenal in the passing and scoring department and since he joined the club he is doing everything that he needs to do.”

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still trying to figure out his best midfield, although it seems Fernandes has got to be a part of any lineup.

What’s unclear at the moment is how Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek will fit into that side.

Van de Beek played well during his recent Champions League appearance, displaying some positive forward passes and runs.

Fernandes remains the star man, however, and at this rate could emerge as one of the players of the season.

United’s next match is against Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday.
