Fernandes hopes to make life easier for his new team-mate. The £72 million ($92m) signing came off the bench to make his United debut in last week’s 3-1 loss against Arsenal.
“He’s someone who always wants to speak to everyone” – the captain said. “He wants to get into the team and he wants to work hard in training so that he can be fit as soon as possible.”
“I’m here to help the wingers and strikers, as well as build a connection with them.”
“I want my strikers and wingers to score goals,” he said. “I want to see their happy faces, celebrating in front of the Stretford End at Old Trafford.”
In the summer of 2015, Hojlund joined Manchester United from Atalanta. After a successful season in Serie A where he scored 10 goals in 34 games, the Red Devils were quick to snap him up.
