Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has paid the ultimate compliment to midfielder Bruno Fernandes after another fine performance in yesterday’s 1-0 win over West Brom.

The Red Devils were not at their very best against the Baggies, but Fernandes scored the winner from the penalty spot to cap another strong display and bag an important three points for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

Speaking about Fernandes after United’s win over West Brom, BT Sport pundit Ferdinand said, as quoted by the Metro: “Everything comes through him.
