Fernandes: Eriksen makes my game easier
Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes says the addition of Christian Eriksen has allowed him to become even more effective in matches.
While Eriksen has often been seen dropping deep to collect the ball and dictate play from the base of United’s midfield in those victories, Fernandes has regularly been able to push forward and influence the game from dangerous attacking positions, around and inside the penalty area.
The duo have thus formed an early chemistry together on the pitch and Fernandes took the time to speak about that relationship during his recent appearance in TeamViewer’s diary room, for a new episode of the ‘Player Diaries’ series.

TeamViewer Player Diaries | Bruno Fernandes talks the season so far, team spirit and playing with Christian Eriksen...
“I’m really happy to have him on the team because, as I’ve said before, he’s a quality player. He’s a player who’s showed in the past that he has really good qualities in the Premier League, in the Italian league, even for his national team.
“So, it’s always a pleasure to play with players like him.”
As well as speaking about Eriksen, Fernandes explains the impact that our summer additions, as a whole, have had at the club in the opening weeks of the new term.
“I think everyone has settled in very well, the new signings have been playing. So, when you play, it’s easier to get settled and you get that time to know your team-mates, the environment, the atmosphere and everything. That’s really important.
“But more than that, they’ve been really good on the pitch, they have had a good impact, a positive impact on the team and we are really happy for all of them.
“They have the same role as everyone else, but they will get time to connect with the team, connect with the fans, connect with the history of the club and obviously connect with what we have to do as a team.”
