Bruno Fernandes finally got his preferred number after the departure of the Spaniard.


What did Bruno Fernandes say?

The Portuguese player will wear jersey no. 8 for the Red Devils next season. Fernandes has been wearing Manchester United No. 18 since his arrival from Sporting CP in January 2020. However, the Portuguese was eyeing his new number and was finally able to take it ahead of the upcoming campaign.

The Portuguese midfielder has worn the No. 8 jersey for Sporting CP, Udinese and the Portugal national team. Bruno Fernandes admitted that he wanted the same amount in Man Utd, but Spanish footballer Juan Mata took it.

Now that Juan has left Old Trafford on the expiration of his contract, Bruno has moved to wind down his preferred figure. When asked why he chose No. 18 when he joined Man Utd, the Portugal international said that for the last three years he has played as No. 8 because that is the number his father had as a player and his birthday and that is the number which he likes.

According to Bruno Fernandes, the number 18 is also his wife’s birthday and another reason is that when he grew up he saw Paul Scholes play in it and for him this jersey and this amount of amazing player is that he will enjoy. Bruno says that he knows that he has a lot of responsibility. Bruno already has a number tattooed on his arm.


Other players who have worn No8 for the Red Devils

English player Paul Ince was the first player to be named Man Utd No. 8 when fixed jersey numbers were introduced in 1993. Englishman Nicky Butt then held, as did Wayne Rooney before the player moved to No10 in 2007, while linebacker Anderson also wore it.

The Spaniard then had the number from 2015 until his departure this year and responded to Bruno’s decision, with Juan Mata joking that his former teammate might not have been sad to see him leave this summer given his new jersey.
