Fernandez, who joined Manchester United from Sporting in January 2020, has performed very well for the Red Devils. The 26-year-old midfielder has been a key factor in his side's success, with Carvalhal now claiming that Manchester United rely too heavily on Bruno Fernandes.

“I think it’s not good in any team in the world if you depend too much on one player, so this is not good of course,” the current Braga manager, who coached Sporting in 2009-10."

“The best thing would be for the team to work together as a collective, because Manchester United have a lot of players who can be a threat, not just Fernandes.

“When a team depends too much on one player it can be very difficult to achieve something, because opponents find a way to block that player, sometimes the player can get injured or suspended, so you can’t depend on one player.

“Football is a collective game, it’s about 11 players. And while it’s important to have individual players to win a game, you need all the players.

“If you don’t depend so much on one player, and every player makes a difference, you can beat any team.”
