Watch: Fernandes shows leadership at key moment in Man Utd comeback


It’s easy to forget Bruno Fernandes has been at Manchester United for less than a year, given how much of a leader he already is.

The latest example of many came at St Mary’s as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men mounted a three-goal second-half comeback to beat Southampton 3-2.

Having scored the first to get United back into the game, Fernandes’ long-range effort was then headed in by half-time substitute Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguayan striker wheeled off to celebrate at the corner flag, but Fernandes barely allowed himself a fist-pump before remaining at the edge of the D and beckoning his team-mates to go and find a winner.

Evidently not satisfied with a point, he got his wish when Cavani scored his second of the game in injury-time.
