Bruno Fernandes was understood to be ‘absolutely delighted’ with his debut for Manchester United on Saturday, according to a report in Portugal.
The 25-year-old arrived in Manchester this week – after sealing a £67.8million move from Sporting Lisbon – with a sterling reputation as a creative midfielder capable of scoring and creating goals at will.
He played the full 90 minutes of a 0-0 draw with Wolves at Old Trafford on Saturday, featuring as a No.10 in the first half before dropping back to sit and dictate the pace of the game in the second period.
And Portuguese publication Record (via Sport Witness) claims that despite being ‘absolutely delighted’ with how his Man Utd debut went, Fernandes was ‘outraged’ at not scoring one of his chances in the stalemate.
The scoreline wasn’t what Fernandes wanted but the report adds that he still has ‘enthusiasm’ that things will go well for him at United, while he was shocked by the Premier League’s ‘rhythm and intensity’.
Record adds that Man Utd’s ‘greatness and professionalism’ has also surprised him as he goes in search of a new house.
