Ole Solskjaer believes that Bruno Fernandes can help his teammate Anthony Martial to have the best season of his career at the club.

Bruno Fernandes had an instant impact at Manchester United after he completed his move in the winter transfer window. During that time, Fernandes also upped the game of Anthony Martial who finally started converting goals for the club.

Observing this, Manchester United manager Ole Solskjaer believes that Fernandes can help him experiencing the best season of his career at Manchester United.

“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.

Martial’s tally of 16 goals in all competitions for United in 2019/20 is only one fewer than his best ever since he played his debut season for the club in 2015/16 under Louis Van Gaal.

“He’s working hard and for me, Anthony was on the way to his best season at Manchester United. so let’s 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.”

Fernandes and Martial will once again reappear for Manchester United together, once the Premier League resumes from 17th June.
