Bruno Fernandes has hailed Manchester United summer signing Christian Eriksen for making his game easier thanks to his vision and passing ability.
The Dane arrived on a free transfer over the summer and has slotted into Erik ten Hag’s side impressively in midfield, quickly becoming an integral part of the Dutch manager’s new team at Old Trafford.
There were some questions over how the United midfield would work with Eriksen and Fernandes a part of it, but it is going well for them at the moment and the Portuguese star feels the Denmark international compliments his game perfectly.
‘It’s really good to play with Christian [Eriksen], he’s a player that can find the passes, find the pockets and obviously make my game easier because he finds me when I move between the lines. It’s something that’s not easy to do,’ said Fernandes.
‘I’m really happy to have him on the team because, as I’ve said before, he’s a quality player.
‘He’s a player who’s showed in the past that he has really good qualities in the Premier League, in the Italian league, even for his national team.’
Eriksen shone for Denmark this week as his country beat France in the Nations League and French boss Didier Deschamps was also full of praise for him.
‘There is an attacking player who even surprised me, and not just because of what had happened that could have been dramatic for him, and obviously it’s Christian Eriksen,’ said Deschamps.
‘He has always been someone who has a remarkable technical ability… but the volume of games he plays, this ability even to recover is impressive.’
