Bruno Fernandes Told He's 'Always Looking' For Cristiano Ronaldo, Too Dependent On Him

​Bruno Fernandes is too dependent on Cristiano Ronaldo and is 'always looking' for his Manchester United teammate, claims Eidur Gudjohnsen​.

Fernandes hasn't been as influential as last season, with Man United languishing in sixth place.

He has scored just five league goals this term after bagging a hat-trick against Leeds United in their Premier League opener. 

The Portuguese ace could have had more goals and assists to his name if he wasn't so dependent on Ronaldo and 'always looking' for him.

That's according to former Chelsea man Gudjohnsen who claims Fernandes is trying too hard to find Ronaldo. 

"It’s as if Fernandes was always looking for Cristiano Ronaldo," he told Icelandic broadcaster MBL via Portuguese outlet Record.

Gudjohnsen added: "Nine out of ten times, he tries to find Ronaldo and if this doesn’t work, he gets impatient and begins to try very difficult things.

"Bearing in mind the way he began at United, we want to see much more of him​."

Since returning to Old Trafford, though, Ronaldo has bagged an impressive 13 goals in 18 matches in all competitions. 

He scored his seventh league goal of the season against Norwich last weekend.

Fernandes, on the other hand, failed to make an impression in the game, with critics claiming he's still adjusting to his new role under Ralf Rangnick. 

The Red Devils, meanwhile, were supposed to resume their league campaign on Saturday against Brighton.

But their Covid-19 outbreak has seen the game postponed, with their next game scheduled for December 27 against Newcastle United.
