Bruno Fernandes is looking forward to playing alongside Paul Pogba as Manchester United prepare to face Tottenham on Friday, June 19, 2020, in their first game of the Premier League restart.
The duo are yet to feature in a competitive match together as the Portugal star arrived at the club while Pogba was still recovering from ankle surgery.
There is growing excitement from supporters about seeing the pair in the same side ahead of Friday’s meeting with Spurs, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having played them together in a number of training games.
That included a friendly against West Brom at Old Trafford and Fernandes has admitted that it will be “amazing” to feature in the same team as the World Cup winner.
“I think everyone is excited to see Paul Pogba play again. He’s had a long time out injured and to play alongside him will be amazing,” Fernandes told talkSPORT.
“We have a lot of good players and the most important thing is the result for Manchester United. Everyone wants to play with the best players and Pogba is one of them.”
Some have questioned whether the pair will be able to play alongside each other but Manchester United manager, Solskjaer has no issue in putting them both in the same team.
“Good players can always play together, so definitely, they can – it’s a big yes,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports last month.
