Fernandes has looked the part since arriving from Sporting Lisbon in January and McTominay clearly admires his new team-mate.
“Yeah, obviously you see with Bruno, he’s come in and he’s a born winner straightaway,” he said.
“You see that in training as well. He’s willing to take the ball, to receive the ball in any situation and obviously play the killer pass, which is what we need as a team.
“We need that creativity, we need that spark from somebody and I feel like he’s come in and had an amazing start. I can’t give him enough credit for the way he has started his career here. Obviously for me, he’s demanding, he’s very demanding because he’s a no. 10 who wants the ball so you have to give him the ball and, if you don’t, then you can be in a little bit of trouble!
“But no, he’s been a breath of fresh air and I’m sure the manager would reiterate that as well with the way he’s come in and interacted with the group perfectly. Obviously, he’s got a personality and that’s what this football club needs, footballers who play for Manchester United need to have that personality on the pitch and he has that in abundance so it’s a real credit.”
