EPL: Bruno Fernandes reacts to claims he can’t play with Ronaldo


Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, has dismissed claims that he and Cristiano Ronaldo cannot play in the same team.

Ronaldo scored twice while Fernandes also got on the scoresheet, as United beat Newcastle 4-1 on Saturday.

Fernandes instantly became United’s talisman after he arrived from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020.

However, Ronaldo’s arrival this summer, led to questions over whether his influence would wane.

“‘Of course, that was never in doubt. Good players can be put together and always play well. Some days you can play well, some other days no. But it is not because one is closing the space of another. It’s because football is like that sometimes.

“Everyone knows what Cristiano Ronaldo brought for the club and we are really happy to have him. The most important, as he will say, is the result for the team. Good players can always play well together,” Fernandes told the media after the Newcastle game.
