Bruno Fernandes Has Won More Player Of The Month Awards Than Some Of Premier League's Greatest

Bruno Fernandes has won more Player of the Month awards than some of the Premier League's greatest.

Fernandes has only been a Manchester United player since January. But he's now won the award three times in the six months he has been eligible for having also picked up the trophy in February and March.

The Portuguese midfielder becomes just the third player to win the Player of the Month award three times in a single calendar year, following Ashley Young in 2008 and Harry Kane in 2017.

With his latest triumph, he passed 13 Premier League icons who have won the award twice: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Dimitar Berbatov, Cesc Fabregas, Robbie Fowler, Ryan Giggs, Eden Hazard, Roy Keane, Matt Le Tissier, Teddy Sheringham, Raheem Sterling, Luis Suárez, Fernando Torres and Gianfranco Zola.

Fernandes won the Player of the Month for November after scoring four times and recording four assists.

"It's difficult to have one of these, so I'm really proud to have my third one," he told the Premier League's official website.

"I will be happy when I win the Premier League. The point to come to England, to such a huge club, was to win the Premier League and I think we have the chance to do it."

In total Fernandes has 24 Premier League appearances to his name, with 15 goals and 11 assists.

It was a double Portuguese win for November, with Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho winning Manager of the Month.
