Solskjaer tips Bruno Fernandes to help Man Utd teammate finish "best season"

Bruno Fernandes' partnership with Anthony Martial can help spur the Frenchman on towards completing his best season at Manchester United, according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Portuguese international Fernandes has wowed United fans ever since arriving at the club from Sporting Lisbon in January, even though his first season in English football has ended up being disrupted by the coronavirus crisis.

In United's last Premier League game before the season was halted, Fernandes' quickly and cleverly taken free-kick led to Martial opening the scoring in the 2-0 derby victory over Manchester City on March 8.

Martial's tally of 16 goals in all competitions for United in 2019/20 is only one fewer than his best ever return in a full campaign for the club, and his best total since the 17 he scored under Louis van Gaal in his first season in 2015/16.

And Solskjaer hopes he is primed to finish off an impressive campaign.

"Well Anthony’s had a difficult season with injuries but he started the season really well and he’s finishing off…well the season’s not finished yet… but he did really well towards the end," Solskjaer told Premier League Productions, via Metro Sport.

"He’s working hard and for me Anthony was on the way to his best season at Manchester United. so lets see if he finishes it off and kicks on again."

Fernandes has so far netted three goals for his new club, and Solskjaer is delighted with the way he's linked up with Martial.

"Tony and Bruno have hit it off together so it’s a partnership that we hope can flourish," he continued.

"We knew he was a quality player and knew that when he came in he would have an impact straight away but you never know if he’s going to settle early in a new country but he’s taken to it like a duck to water."
