Following Manchester United’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur, club captain Bruno Fernandes was praised for how he led his team against the Lilywhites.
At the start of the 2023/24 season, Fernandes would officially become club captain, but since then has faced criticism from some for his behaviour on the pitch.
“You know who I thought was really good today but not really on the ball but off the ball, Fernandes,” Richards told his co-hosts. “I thought his attitude was brilliant.
“There were certain times where Spurs were on the counter-attack, and he was running back and leading by example, and I just thought his all-round attitude today was excellent.
“I know he is always very creative, one of the best creators in the league, but sometimes he gets a bit emotional so the quality in his game you don’t really talk about. But it was his work rate which shone for me.”
Fernandes has remained an integral part of every Manchester United side since his arrival under then-boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer back in January 2020.
Joining for £47 million, Fernandes has since made 213 appearances for the side, contributing to 129 goals.
