Bruno Fernandes reveals secret to Paul Pogba connection. Both Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba helped Manchester United fightback to earn a 1-1 draw at Tottenham on their Premier League return.
Bruno Fernandes scored what could prove to be an important penalty for Manchester United in the race for the top-four after turning on the style with Paul Pogba. The Portuguese international remained on penalty duty despite the return of the Frenchman and Marcus Rashford.
The midfield pair offered a glimpse into the future for Solskjaer as they showed a natural connection in the 30 minutes they shared together on the pitch.
Pogba won the penalty that was dispatched confidently by Fernandes. The January signing thought he’d won another spot-kick late in the game when he went down under the challenge of Eric Dier before VAR overturned the call.
“We’ve been training hard in the past few weeks,” Fernandes told Sky Sports.
“When we train in groups I was in the group with Paul so to find the connection is easier.”
“I found a good connection with everyone and the most important thing is the team.”
“Paul thinks the same and we are happy, the penalty I kick. So most important is the team so it doesn’t matter who scores, assists, the more important is winning.”
