Former Manchester United defender believes Fernandes is lifting the team as much as Roy Keane and Robson used to.

No one can deny the impact of

Bruno Fernandes


Manchester United

. His records are crazy. No one in the Premier League had more goal contributions than him and he alone had created more chances than Arsenal’s entire team.

Paul Parker

, former Manchester United defender compares the Portuguese defender with Roy Keane and Robson in terms of lifting the whole squad. He told Eurosport ahead of a trip to Southampton on Sunday for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side:

“What team does Ole Gunnar Solskjaer play? Will he suddenly go back to two holding midfielders?

“No matter what, they need Bruno Fernandes. Him being there lifts other players, they believe a little bit more when he's playing, he's becoming that kind of player, like Bryan Robson or Roy Keane.”

“It depends how Solskjaer goes around the rest of it,”

added Parker.

“I think he should start Edinson Cavani, give him 90 minutes in the Premier League.

“Will he go Mason Greenwood and Daniel James? If he does I think he'll be going too far against a Southampton side who virtually play the same team week in, week out, and rarely make mistakes.”
