Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes says Eric Cantona comparisons untimely, eyes silverware – soccer

Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes has performed down comparisons to Eric Cantona after a blistering begin to his profession at Outdated Trafford, insisting he wants trophies on his resume earlier than he can start to succeed in the Frenchman’s standing. Fernandes has made an prompt influence since arriving from Sporting Lisbon in January, scoring 11 targets and organising eight to fireside United to a third-place end within the Premier League and the Europa League semi-final.

His influence has been likened by former United gamers to that of Cantona, who joined Sir Alex Ferguson’s Man United from Leeds United halfway by way of the 1992-93 season and helped finish their 26-year look ahead to a league title.

“It’s actually good for me to hearken to that and to be talked about alongside such names,” Fernandes, 25, instructed the membership’s web site on Saturday. “For me, Cantona was a tremendous participant for the membership and I must do a lot better to be in contrast with him.

“I’m actually completely happy for what I’ve finished, however I’m not happy just like the coach stated.”

United face Sevilla within the final 4 of the Europa League on Sunday hoping to get third time fortunate after falling on the semi-final hurdle within the League Cup to Manchester Metropolis and within the FA Cup to Chelsea.

“Coming to Manchester is about successful trophies. I will likely be completely happy on the finish of this season to have one, if we win the Europa League,” the Portuguese midfielder added.
