Bruno Fernandes could miss United's first game of the season

Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes becoming a prominent figure at the club

According to The Independent, Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes is believed to be emerging as a prominent figure at the club.

The Portuguese international has been the star of the show since joining the club last January. He revitalized the team and also led us to a top-four finish last season.

This season, however, has been a different case, with the team as a whole looking out of sorts. Fernandes has scored two Premier League goals from the spot but has lacked his usual influence on the pitch.

According to the report, the 25-year-old is growing into a leader at the club. He was at the forefront of the inquest during the half-time break of the 6-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur.

It would appear that he has ruffled feathers with the way he spoke to his teammates during that day. Fernandes, however, downplayed reports of him having a falling out with Solskjaer.

The Norwegian too for his part has called for unity as United look to turn their season around.

While there is no debate on Fernandes’ importance to the squad, taking an antagonistic approach when things aren’t going our way could be counterproductive.

The two league losses this season were the first for Fernandes since he joined the club. As a leader, he will do well to control his temperament and know when and where he has to stay silent.
