Bruno Fernandes has opened up on working under Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s position is always under intense scrutiny but Bruno Fernandes has suggested he is doing a great job in the Old Trafford hotseat and hinted he would be delighted for him to continue beyond this season.
Fernandes completed the move to United in January in a £47million deal with Sporting Lisbon.
The midfielder has made an instant impact as the Red Devils enjoy an 11-match unbeaten run.
However, with Mauricio Pochettino’s available this summer it is suggested Solskjaer could be axed if he fails to bring in Champions League football.
But Fernandes insists he is happy playing under the Norwegian and has explained how the former striker prepares his team well.
“It’s difficult because it’s been one month, but he’s always careful with the details and for me, that’s important because it is one of the things which changes football now is looking for the details,” Fernandes told Sky Sports.
“Now, every coach is really good, they look at each other and learn from each other and so the game is difficult.
“Now you have videos and most teams know what you will do, where you will place the ball, where they need to press so the game becomes harder and harder.
“I think he’s really good on this and he was a footballer so he knows when he needs to talk to players, when he needs to give q good word or sometimes come and push you to give more.
“I think when you have a past in football, you understand these things more than when you don’t have [a past].
“But sometimes you have coaches who never play football and they also know this too so it depends coach from coach but I think Ole is really careful with these kind of points.
“He wants perfection, which is impossible, but he tries to ask more and more from us.”
Fernandes also explained how Solskjaer has helped him adjust to life in a new country.
He added: “I think the coach is always important for a new player when you come in.
“With me, it was really important because you need to feel confidence from the other side.
“When you need to change, and it’s a big change coming from another country to a big club with big players, you need to be ready.
“I think when I arrived here, the coach was really important but more than the coach was my team-mates because when you have the confidence of your team-mates, it’s much better and easier for you.”
