“Leading by example” – Former skipper heaps the praise on inspirational Man United star

Bryan Robson full of praise for Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes

Speaking on TalkSport, former Manchester United skipper Bryan Robson has lavished praise on Bruno Fernandes for leading by example since his arrival at the club in 2020.

The Portuguese sensation hit the ground running and has been arguably the club’s best player since. With 23 goals and 14 assists, he leads the club in both categories this season. (h/t BBC)

United are currently second in the table and are also in line to fight for the Europa League. Fernandes may yet write his name into the history books as we look to break our four-year trophyless run.

“You do have characters like that who they lead by example, rather by being shouters or aggressive in tackles.”

Bryan Robson full of praise for Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes

While his numbers speak for themselves, Robson is impressed with the positive influence Fernandes has had on his teammates and the club. He believes the 26-year-old has brought back pride to a club crying out for inspiration since Sir Alex Ferguson left.

“Bruno Fernandes is not really a tackler, but he leads by example because he works really hard and he’s brilliant on the ball.”

One does not have to be the loudest not be given an armband to show leadership on the field. Fernandes is one such example of that.

“I always see him talking and shouting to players and he is always either trying to encourage or having a bit of a go at players if they are not in the right position.”

Robson knows one or two things about leadership

The club’s longest-serving captain, Robson knows more than a thing about leadership and expectations. The fact that he identifies the traits in Fernandes shows a thing or two about the player’s ability.

For now, he has been leading with his performances on the pitch. Whether he will be handed the armband somewhere down the line remains to be seen.

Fernandes is United’s biggest difference maker

One aspect of his game that Fernandes needs to work on is his non-deadball impact against the top sides. The hype surrounding him can be to an extent attributed to the lack of similar quality around him.

However, at 26, he is entering his prime and continues to go from strength to strength. Just how far he can also drag us along remains to be seen.
