Bruno Fernandes has been named the Premier League player of the month for February.
The Manchester United midfielder picks up the award following his first full month in the division, after joining from Sporting Lisbon at the end of the January transfer window.
Fernandes made his United debut in the goalless draw at home to Wolves on February 1, and also played in the Premier League victories over Chelsea and Watford over the course of the month, scoring his first goal for his new club in the latter and registering assists in both games.
The 25-year-old has three goals in nine appearances for United in all competitions since his arrival, with top level football now taking a back seat during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
Fernandes recently spoke about his decision to join United in an interview with Sky Sports.
“The decision was easy because when I had the chance to come, I didn’t think twice,” he said.
“I talked with Sporting, who had already had some discussions with Man Utd about my transfer and when they talk with me, I told them my first choice was Man Utd and it’s what I need for my career.
“I see the same team from one month ago. I think we are the same and have a lot of hunger to win, to give a lot, to do better and better in every game.
“In the last month, we’ve had a lot of really good games and I think we can talk about a new start after Bruno, but it’s not about Bruno, it’s about the team.”
United were due to face a trip to Tottenham on Sunday prior to the suspension of the Premier League.
