Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot has said that it is inevitable that Bruno Fernandes will become a “legend” at the club.

Fernandes, who moved to United from Sporting Lisbon in January, has had a stellar impact since his arrival and played a big part in the club going 11 matches unbeaten in all competitions.

Indeed, the Portugal international was named the Premier League’s Player of the Month for February having scored two goals and registered three assists in five games.

Speaking to the Official Manchester United Podcast, Dalot explained how Fernandes can go from strength to strength under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“He’s a top guy, a top player. He is going to be a legend,” the defender said.

“He’s unbelievable, he can be better of course as well. He’s going to learn a lot from this club.

“I think he is a massive player to have in this team and he’s going to be a very good player for this club. He’s going to be [a legend], no doubt about that.

“He was the captain at Sporting, of course he’s an experienced player as well, 25 years old, he’s played in Italy, he played in Portugal as well. He knows what he is doing. It’s going to be very good for him.”

Fernandes has spoken of his delight after being named the Player of the Month.

He said: “Since I was a kid it was a dream to play for Man Utd, and to be there at Old Trafford is the biggest dream of my career.

“When you come to a new club you always want to score and the first goal is special. It doesn’t matter how the goal is scored, but important is the goal’s worth.

“I’m happy with my start, but from now I need to give more, to be better.”
