Bruno Fernandes was asked about who his best friend is at Man United during a recent interview with club media.
He said: “So that’s a hard one because I have a good relationship with everyone, honestly, but I think I would probably choose Juan [Mata] because I learn a lot from him in this two years.
“He’s been someone who’s been really special and make me better every day, on and off the pitch. He made me grow up to be a better player and a better person also.”
Fernandes has often displayed his love for Mata with some posts on social media and has often been seen with him in training sessions.
He hasn’t been able to play much with El Mago this season, mostly because of the Spaniard’s lack of opportunities, but seems to share a very close bond with him off the pitch.
