Man United without Cavani and Maguire for PSG trip

Man United without Cavani and Maguire for PSG trip”

The 26-year-old Portuguese midfielder was left stunned when Solskjaer revealed that he would be United skipper for the PSG clash at the Parc des Princes.

The Red Devils got back to winning ways at the weekend against Newcastle United.

Ahead of United's return to Champions League action against Paris Saint-Germain this week, the Norwegian has named Fernandes as captain for the game after it was announced Harry Maguire would be absent for the visit to the French capital.

"The captain sits next to me".

"Bruno has definitely come in and had a great positive impact. Bruno will captain the team tomorrow", declared Solskjaer in his press conference.

"His performances have been receiving real great praise as well".

"We hope that the players won't be away for too long. That was a turning point in our season last season and we hope from more to come".

Fernandes has been a revelation since his arrival from Sporting in the January transfer window, scoring 12 goals in 22 appearances across all competitions during the second half of the 2020-21 season.

"I was not expecting this", he conceded, before expressing his delight. Of course, for me, it's an honour I will be captain for my team-mates and being captain of Manchester United is important for me. "I know the same time as you". The captain is everyone - everyone needs to help, be a leader in their way.

"I think I can do much better than before".

As well as Maguire, United travel to Paris without Eric Bailly, Mason Greenwood, Jesse Lingard and Edinson Cavani, who misses the chance to play against his old team.

Nonetheless, even if it is temporary, Bruno has the opportunity to lead his teammates to a wonderful achievement if United beat PSG on Tuesday night.
