“I met him already but never had the chance to speak with him like I would like to do,” said Fernandes in a Q&A with United fans.

“I think everyone who watched Manchester United in the past remembers Sir Alex. [That is true] for me, growing up and seeing the club, being a fan of the club and seeing the development of the team.

“I would like to have a conversation with him and understand, from his point of view, what he thinks about me and what I can improve or still improve in my game to be better.”

Well, Bruno, while we hope you do get to spend more time with Sir Alex in future, now you know – he’s a massive fan!
