Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hailed United’s win over Leeds United as a team victory, but he was particularly pleased with the performance of Bruno Fernandes.

Bruno Fernandes struggled towards the end of last season, but he started this season in fine form with a hat-trick in our opening game of the season.

Solskjaer praised Bruno Fernandes as a quality player and hailed him as a risk taker.

“He’s a risk taker, he’s a Man United player. When you’re a forward at United you have to have confidence, a little bit of arrogance and take risks. When you have the quality he’s got, players give him decent chances to be fair!” He told BT Sport.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand was also full of praise for Paul Pogba who assisted four goals in the game, the most of any Manchester United player in the Premier League.

“I just love watching him play, you’ve got players who play safe, he plays on the edge all day,” he said.

“The big thing about Pogba and Bruno, when it went flat those two players came alive. That’s what you want from big players in those times.”
