Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes Bruno Fernandes could be demoralising Manchester United teammates with his 'perfectionist' attitude.
The midfielder joined the Red Devils in January 2020 from Sporting Lisbon and became an instant success at Old Trafford - helping them finish third last season in spite of their poor start.
He has scored 34 goals and 21 assists in 59 appearances across competitions - a performance that has won him four Premier League player of the month awards.

The Portuguese attacker has equally matched Lionel Messi's figures and he is definitely important to United's quest to stay relevant according to Wright as reported by Sport Bible.
However, the former Gunners forward warns that Fernandes frustration towards teammates could affect them, the Arsenal legend said on his podcast Wrighty's House.
"I look at Bruno Fernandes and he just seems to be getting more and more frustrated with people when I'm watching him.
"I don't want people to take this wrong and say, 'Oh, Wrighty's digging him out,' I'm not digging him out, I just look at leaders like him, he's obviously the leader of Manchester United, it's blatantly obvious to see.
"Dennis [Bergkamp] was the leader for us on the pitch and I never saw him get frustrated with individuals to the point where he was turning and doing that thing because it's so demoralising for you. He looks like a perfectionist, if everything is not bang on perfect he seems to be upset."
The publication added that Fernandes is not the first Portuguese star to show frustration on the Old Trafford pitch, with Cristiano Ronaldo often left with his head in his hands, either because of what he'd done or his teammates.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester United goalkeeper Nathan Bishop has been hailed by Portugal international Bruno Fernandes after signing a new deal.
Bishop Nathan actually joined the Red Devils from Southend in January 2020 and has already caught the eye of Old Trafford coaching crew under Ole Solskjaer.
The Red Devils have handed the English goalkeeper improved terms in a contract that runs until 2023 with the option to extend for another year.
