Manchester United attacking midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, has named Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, as his ‘idol’ in football.

According to Fernandes, he wants to follow in the footsteps of Ronaldo, who is widely considered as one of the best players in the world.

“Ronaldo welcomed me very well to the Portugal national team,” Fernandes told Cronache di Spogliatoi.

“We look at him as an idol, and he has always been an idol for me. I followed his example, and he is one of my favourites.

“When I was called up by Portugal, he came to me saying, ‘You are doing a good job at Sporting, I like it.’

“Words like these make the difference.”

Fernandes and Ronaldo are both international teammates with Portugal’s national team.

The 25-year-old joined Man United last January from Sporting Lisbon.

He has already scored three goals and registered three assists in eight matches in all competitions for the Red Devils so far this season.

Fernandes, earlier this week, won the Premier League player for February.
