Manchester United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka names the attribute he would take from Bruno Fernandes

Manchester United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka names the attribute he would take from Bruno Fernandes

Wan-Bissaka’s Man United stint

Aaron Wan-Bissaka of course joined Manchester United from Crystal Palace in 2019.

The full-back set the Red Devils back a fairly hefty sum, believed to be around £50m including add-ons.

Since his switch to Old Trafford, though, Wan-Bissaka has proven himself to be a very solid purchase.

And though United’s backline could still do with some tweaking, the purchases of AWB and Harry Maguire, accompanied by Luke Shaw’s resurgence, have certainly seen the Manchester giants look much improved.

What AWB wants to take from Fernandes

Whilst he has continued to prove himself as solid defensively, though, Wan-Bissaka remains lacking somewhat on the attacking front.

Such shortcomings, meanwhile, have seen his chances at international level extremely limited. When drawn on his decision not to opt for the United stopper at the back end of 2020, Gareth Southgate appeared to hint that it was Wan-Bissaka’s lack of attacking prowess which led to others being picked ahead of him:

“Aaron is a very good defender, one against one he’s probably as good as I have seen, but I have to look at the balance of the team and currently there are players ahead of him.”

So, when asked in an interview this week what attribute he would take from one of his teammates, if handed the opportunity, it didn’t come as too much of a surprise to see the defender opt for the vision of Bruno Fernandes:

“If I could add any attribute from any team-mate to my game, I’d have to pick Bruno’s vision.

“In training, if I’m against him, I’ll think he’s going for an obvious pass, say over my right shoulder, but then he’ll play it somewhere else in another way. He’s so unpredictable.

“I want to achieve a lot here. I think anything’s possible for this club and this team.
