Jamie Redknapp on Bruno Fernandes: 'He's a very, very talented player.'

Updated: Feb 3

Man United's new signing could become a Premier League star, according to Jamie Redknapp.

Jamie Redknapp has heaped praise on Manchester United's new recruit Bruno Fernandes, saying the Portugal international is 'a very, very talented player'.

The former Liverpool and Tottenham star believes 'United have an amazing record of making good players turn into bad ones' but he hopes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his coaching staff 'find a way of getting the best out of' the midfield ace - who scored 20-odd goals from midfield last season for Sporting Lisbon.

"He's a very, very talented player," Redknapp told the Sky Sports Football Weekend Preview podcast.

"I saw him last summer in the Nations League and I was very impressed with him. He got 20-odd goals from midfield last season and he's got an unbelievable strike from distance. If you look at his numbers they're amazing.

"Frank Lampard is the best I've ever seen for scoring goals from midfield but this guy is doing it as well.

"But what you have to remember is, right now United have an amazing record of making good players turn into bad ones.

"They've got to look after this guy because he's a super player. But the players they're signing have got to perform better and they have to find a way of getting the best out of these players.

"I don't subscribe to this theory they keep signing bad players, they're just not working correctly with these players and they need to create an environment where these players know if they're not doing well enough and not just be able to turn it on when they want.

"And that sometimes comes down to the manager."
