Bruno Fernandes Has Picked A Premier League Five-A-Side Team With An Unique Twist
Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has picks his all-time Premier League five-a-side team, using only Portuguese players.
The former Sporting Lisbon midfielder has picked a special team compromising of his compatriots and it is seriously impressive.
Fernandes even resisted the temptation of including himself in the starting line up, instead opting for two of the current Wolves side, two Chelsea greats and a United legend.
“We have such good players in the Premier League,” Fernandes told Premier League productions.
“So first I put (Rui) Patricio in goal. Ricardo Carvalho in defence, one of the best defenders we have in Portugal, of all time you know.
“(Joao) Moutinho to build up a little bit because I think he’s one of the smartest players we have, and after I would put Deco.
“For Portugal, he’s side by side with Rui Costa as the best number ten player we’ve had in the past, so I will put Deco in for sure.
“In front, I don’t need to know. Cristiano of course.”
Despite limiting himself to only Portuguese players it is safe to say Fernandes’ team would take some beating, and the United midfielder believes his squad offers a bit of everything.
He added: “Carvalho he can cover side to side so I put him alone in defence. After you have Moutinho to organise your game.
“You have Deco to give the ball to Cristiano, and you have Cristiano to score. I think it’s complete the team, you know.”
