Man United fans name ideal midfield partner for Fernandes and Pogba

2 min read

Manchester United fans believe Nemanja Matic is the perfect partner for Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba in a midfield three should Premier League football return in the near future.

Members of the United squad trained on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday after Premier League clubs backed a proposal to return to first-team training this week.

Work is only permitted in small groups and social distancing guidelines must be adhered to. Fernandes and Pogba arrived at a similar time on Thursday, though fans were not treated to an image of United’s two star midfielders together.

Fernandes has hit the ground running since his move from Sporting Lisbon in January and supporters are eager to see him in action alongside the Frenchman who is United’s most creative midfielder.

Given the duo’s attacking qualities, United fans believe Matic would be the perfect foil for them in the engine room. The Serb enjoyed a resurgence in the side prior to the postponement of the season, leading to United triggering the one-year contract extension clause in his contract.

Supporters are keen to see him continue his run of form continue and provide a platform for Fernandes and Pogba to flourish.

Matic recently admitted he was surprised to see Fernandes make an instant impact, given the difficult adaptation players often face when arriving in England.

He said: “I follow the Portuguese league, I knew [Bruno Fernandes] was good – even though he played for Sporting!

“But I’m very surprised he adapted so quickly to the Premier League. He brings us a lot of qualities, like the confidence he has on the pitch – he always knows what he wants to do with the ball.”
