Bruno Fernandes Club Career
Fernandes enjoyed spells at a number of clubs in Portugal at the youth level. The 26-year-old spent time at Infesta, Boavista and Pasteleira before moving to Italian outfit Novara in 2012. It was here that he got his first taste of senior football.
His performances were enough to see Serie A side Udinese sign him on a co-ownership deal in 2013. He spent three seasons with the club before moving on to local rivals Sampdoria in 2016. Despite his abilities, he never quite stood out in Italy as a player capable of making a difference.
A return to Portugal in 2017 with Sporting Lisbon proved to be the catalyst for a turnaround. He made 137 appearances for them in all competitions, scoring 63 goals and making 52 assists. It caught the attention of Manchester United who finally landed him in the beginning of 2020.
Fernandes has gone from strength to strength at Old Trafford and is arguably the club’s best player today. He has shown little signs of slowing down and could go on to etch his name in club folklore in the years to come.
Bruno Fernandes International Career
Fernandes has represented Portugal at different youth levels from the Under-19 side to the Under-23 side. The midfielder captained the nation at the Under-21 level. He was also part of the country’s Olympic side in 2016.
His time in Italy did him no favours and he was largely overlooked for the senior team. He caught his big break in 2017 when he was called up for the World Cup qualifiers against Faroe Islands and Hungary.
While he did not take to the field in either, it showed he was moving in the right direction. He eventually got his big break against Saudi Arabia in a friendly clash later that year. Fernandes has since gone on to become a regular fixture for the Iberians.
He has represented Portugal at the 2018 FIFA World Cup and the 2020 UEFA European Championship. His biggest honour at the senior level came at the international stage when Portugal won the 2018/19 UEFA Nations League.
