Watch: Luke Shaw admits Man Utd are in danger of being too reliant on Bruno


Luke Shaw admits Manchester United‘s squad needs to step up on the pitch to relieve the burden of pressure on Bruno Fernandes.

Fernandes has quickly established himself as one of the form players in England since joining United in January 2020 from Sporting Lisbon.

The midfielder has been prolific in terms of goals and assists, while there have also been calls for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to hand him the captain’s armband.

But Fernandes’ creative inspiration hasn’t been able to solve United’s frailties, and Shaw admitted to Sky Sports that United are in danger of being too reliant on the Portugal international.

“Sometimes it looks like if Bruno doesn’t play well, then we struggle,” Shaw said.
