Fernandes choose his best center-back between Lindelof, Maguire & Varane
Manchester United’s first choice centre-back pairing has been Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire, and the duo are doing well together.
Manchester United will however be without skipper Harry Maguire for the Champions League clash against Villarreal due to injury.
Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes is pleased with the calibre of players in the United defence
While he hailed summer signing Raphael Varane, he also believes that the other defenders can do a good job.
According to Bruno, they all have their unique qualities.
Bruno Fernandes told United Review: “I think he has a great mentality but, at the same time, we cannot forget the other players”
“Rapha has been brilliant, but Victor [Lindelof] has had an amazing, brilliant beginning to the season”
“Eric [Bailly] comes later because of the Olympic Games, but he’s a player we trust a lot”
“H” [Harry Maguire] we already know is doing really well”
“At the same time, we have Phil [Jones] coming back to start playing with the Under-23s”
“we are really happy to have him back after a long, long stop for him. It’s been difficult for him, being out of the team for a long time.”
The ex-Sporting captain added: “Rapha is really important for us, and has been really important for us”
“but the main point is everyone being okay to do the best that they can”.
“In football, we all have different qualities, and Rapha has different qualities to Victor, H, Eric and Phil, but they can all add different things.”
