Fernandes's Portuguese mission

Monday 24 August 2020 13:24

Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has been spotted at another club - but Reds fans should not be worried about our shrewd January signing.

The Portugal international has spent time in his homeland, visiting his former club Sporting Lisbon, where he enjoyed two-and-a-half successful seasons.

The club are currently on a training camp in the Algarve and were delighted to welcome their former skipper.

"I took the opportunity to visit those who were my team-mates up until a few months ago, as well as the coaching staff, and all of those whom I worked with for two-and-a-half years," Bruno told Sporting TV.

"It was brief, but they need to work and I need to rest. The most important thing was to be able to greet everybody here and I can go home happy."

The Lisbon club's official channel also asked for a quick word about next season's plans for the United no.18, ahead of the big kick-off in September.

His pledge was to "continue to improve and do more", which will be music to all the Reds supporters' ears as he has already made a huge impact during his short time at Old Trafford.
