Bruno Fernandes explains why he refuses to compliment Man Utd teammate Alejandro Garnacho
“But I think if he wasn’t doing what he needed to do, he wouldn’t be playing.”
Fernandes praises Ten Hag over Garnacho treatment
Fernandes acknowledged the impressive way Erik ten Hag has handled Garnacho over the course of the campaign.
“At the beginning of the season, the manager didn’t give him many chances, because he thought that he wasn’t being the best he could,” said Fernandes.
“Now he’s getting his chances and playing a lot this season because he’s training well and doing what he has to do.
“He’s getting his rewards and the team are getting the rewards as well – and that’s the most important thing. Obviously, he was already very good playing for the youth team, but it’s a big difference playing in the Premier League.
“He’s training every day with us, which makes him more prepared for the games. Mentally he’s much better also and I think he understands what it takes to be a professional player.
“We know he can change games, he plays with pace, he can take players on, but he’s still developing, so we don’t have to put too much on him, because he’s still a young kid.
“He can do great things, but in the future, he has to do much better than he is actually doing, because he has the capabilities to be even better.”
