Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Bruno Fernandes has already lifted the mood at Old Trafford after Saturday’s debut.

Fernandes played for the full 90 minutes as United drew 0-0 at home at Wolves on Saturday evening in a game of few chances, although the new boy was heavily involved in the match in the first period.

“We have played them three times now, and they haven’t scored yet. They are hard to work down, very structured,” he told BBC Sport.

“We passed, passed, and passed. In the first half, we didn’t have enough movement, and second half was much better.

“Bruno Fernandes will become a top footballer. Give him time, and he will become an excellent addition for us. We dropped him deeper to get him on the ball, and I thought he and Fred did very well.

“His demeanor, smile, everything about him is a boost for everyone. He is a genuine lad, a top professional and he is a winner. Today we saw glimpses of his character and we will see more and more.”
