Bruno Fernandes Stopped Goal Celebration To Give Advice To Daniel James

Bruno Fernandes stopped his own goal celebration to give teammate Daniel James some advice, which worked perfectly as the Welshman followed it to score his own goal.


It seems like whenever Bruno Fernandes isn't scoring goals for Manchester United he's setting them up and now he's managed to find a way to assist his teammates even when he is scoring.

The Portuguese midfielder set up Scott McTominay's opener against Leeds United on Sunday afternoon, after just 67 seconds of the game, before grabbing the hosts third goal in the opening 20 minutes.


Bruno also scored from the spot to wrap up the scoring but it was his hand in United's fifth goal that previously went under the radar.

The former Sporting midfielder was spotted on United's YouTube channel giving James advice, telling the winger to open his body more, whilst still celebrating his first goal.

James has come in for criticism during his time at United, after moving from Swansea City in the summer of 2019, and hasn't been used much.


He made a rare start against Leeds, a team he nearly joined the January before moving to Manchester before the Swans pulled the plug in the last minute, and had one of his best performances in a United shirt.

Fernandes' impact at Old Trafford has been immense since he joined the team at the end of the January transfer window from Sporting, after months of speculation.

He scored eight league goals and assisted seven more in just 14 appearances as he turned things around for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side and helped earn them a place in the Champions League by finishing third.


His performances haven't dropped this season and he has already scored nine goals in the Premier League this campaign, with five assists.

The video of the 26-year-old giving advice to his teammate will just add to the love that United fans already have for their star midfielder.

He has previously shown other examples of great leadership by setting up Edinson Cavani for his first United goal, rather than going for his hat-trick against Everton, and telling Alex Telles off in training.


The midfielder captained the team against PSG in Paris and fans have questioned whether he should take the armband from Harry Maguire on a more permanent basis.
