Bruno Fernandes says the acquisition of his fellow countryman Cristiano Ronaldo will increase the chances of Manchester United claiming silverware in the current campaign.
Fernandes was commended by the ‘Red Devils’ for playing a significant role in convincing the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to return to Old Trafford after 12 years.
The 27-year-old midfielder believes Ronaldo’s winning mentality will only help boost the desire of an already hungry United squad.
“We know the enthusiasm will be red hot, everyone knows Cristiano is in the house,” Bruno told the club’s official site.
“Everyone is very confident and happy that he is back, the players too.
“We know what he can give us, and our focus, like Cristiano’s, is to win.
“With him, we know we are closer to winning [trophies].”
Ronaldo is expected to make his much-awaited debut for United today against Newcastle in the English Premier League clash.
