Manchester United star-man Bruno Fernandes has put a spanner in the works for the European press who relentlessly paint French midfielder Paul Pogba in a bad light.
Pogba, 27, is never out of the headlines for very long, it’s also rare that he’ll have a positive story written about him. The French World Cup-winner is constantly linked with a move away from United and widely considered to lack the level of professionalism required to be a star in England’s top-flight.
However, Portuguese new-boy Bruno Fernandes has put a spanner in the works for those driving the anti-Pogba agenda.
Speaking in a live video with SoccerBible, Fernandes revealed a humble gesture made to him by his French team-mate: “Paul [Pogba] is the guy who came when I arrived with a big book and said ‘where do you want to live, what price you want to pay, house or apartment’.”
“He flicked through the pages. I chose three places and he said okay tomorrow we will check them.
“I decided the next day – then I did the tests, then power tests, the next day I was with the team training and the next day I was playing against Wolves. And that day I went back to Portugal and when I arrived back I had the house. Adaptation in Manchester was really fast.
“I couldn’t imagine it would be fast like this because I lived in other countries and every time it was a problem to find a house and everything.”
