Ighalo: 'Best yet to come from Fernandes'

Odion Ighalo tips Manchester United teammate Bruno Fernandes to only get better when football resumes after the coronavirus pandemic.

Odion Ighalo has claimed that Manchester United teammate Bruno Fernandes will only improve once he has fully settled into life at Old Trafford.

After a January move from Sporting Lisbon, Fernandes contributed three goals and four assists before football was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

While it remains unclear when domestic and European action will get back underway, Ighalo has warned that the best is yet to come from the Portuguese playmaker.

In an interview with journalist Juliet Bawuah on Twitter, Ighalo said: "Bruno is a fantastic player. I played with him in 2013-14 at Udinese. We've not seen the best of him yet in the Premier League.

"Once Bruno Fernandes settles down in England you will see what that guy can do. He has vision, he wants the ball always. He can shoot, he can score goals, he is very intelligent.

"Before the ball comes, he is a step ahead to know what he wants to do. In times to come you are going to see what he can do in the Premier League, even better than what he is doing now."

Ighalo joined United shortly after Fernandes, netting four times from his eight outings in all competitions.
