Fernandes not been same person since Ronaldo’s return

Manchester United legend, Andy Cole, has said midfielder Bruno Fernandes has not been the same player since Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Old Trafford.

Cole said the Portuguese midfielder has lost form after Ronaldo returned and became the focal point at the club.

Ronaldo made a sudden return to Manchester United from Juventus last summer and has become the main man.

Fernandes was only introduced in the second half in United’s 1-0 loss to Wolves on Monday night.

“It’s been funny at the moment. Ronaldo’s come back and it’s like [Bruno’s] whole game has changed,” Cole said on Sky Sports.

“I looked at him this season, since Ronaldo’s come back and he hasn’t been the same player he was last season.

“And you look at that and think – why?

“He has the quality, he shouldn’t worry about whether Ronaldo’s in the team because they’re both quality players who want the same thing.

“But his form has changed since Ronaldo has come back.”
