"Fernandes needs trophy to join greats" – Man Utd legend Giggs

Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes has had a “massive impact”, but in order for him to stand alongside Eric Cantona, he should struggle hard, says Ryan Giggs.

After a year in English football,



is the one that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer goes to in moments of inspiration.

His latest show was a match-winning free-kick, which struck home in a 3-2 FA Cup fourth-round match with Liverpool.


wishes the Red Devils to pass the line with Fernandes having the lead, and said:

“Eric, when we won the FA Cup in 95-96, he was the difference. In the big games he would every often be the difference.

“Fernandes undoubtedly has had a massive impact on United. There have been comparisons with Eric and the impact he has had – not just his quality but the fact everyone around him seems to be playing better.

“You can just see he is a winner. When things aren’t going right he is telling other players, he’s having a go at the referee, he is constantly moaning and he wants to win.

“He has been a revelation since he came to United. Like all top players, he has to do it in the big games and then win trophies.”


continued by comparing him with Cantona:

“Of course there are similarities – penalty takers, scoring and assisting goals, same position.

“The results have changed since he came into the club and generally lifted the club. But, Eric won three or four leagues and the FA Cup – that’s the benchmark.

“It’s not easy because there is a lot of quality and not a lot of trophies to win. Once he has done that, then you can talk about him and the likes of Cantona.

“You can make a difference on a team but sooner or later – and it’s not just his responsibility – the team have got to win things. He’s a fantastic player. I like his attitude, he doesn’t like losing.”
