Petit: Fernandes and Pogba can play together for Man Utd

Arsenal hero Emmanuel Petit has heaped praise on Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

The £55million January signing has instantly become a huge fan favourite having helped fire the Red Devils into top-four contention.

Petit told the Mirror: “Fernandes has made a huge impact.

“In the space of two months he is the best buy in the winter market. He has made such a big impact. It’s like he’s been at the club for six years.

“He’s changed the mentality inside the dressing room. It’s hard for a player to come in mid-season and do that.

“Paul Pogba was meant to be doing this at Manchester United. It’s what he should have done in terms of leadership on the pitch.

“But I’m looking forward to seeing them together on the pitch, I want to see if that can work, and I’m pretty sure it can work.”
