Manchester United Midfielder Fernandes Says Eric Cantona Comparisons Are Premature

Bruno Fernandes says he needs to “do much better” before he can be compared to Manchester United great Eric Cantona.

Fernandes has made an instant impression since arriving at Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon in January, scoring 11 goals and setting up eight to fire United to a third-placed finish in the Premier League and the Europa League semi-final.
The Portuguese playmaker bids to inspire the United forward line against Sevilla on Sunday night, with a place in the August 21 final against the winners of the Inter-Shakhtar Donetsk tie at stake.
Fernandes’ impact so far has been likened by former United players to that of Cantona, who joined Sir Alex Ferguson’s side from Leeds United midway through the 1992-93 season and helped end their 26-year wait for a league title.
“It’s really good for me to listen to that and to be talked about alongside such names,” Fernandes, 25, told the club’s website on Saturday. “For me, Cantona was an amazing player for the club and I need to do much better to be compared with him.
“I’m really happy for what I have done, but I’m not satisfied like the coach said.”
