We learnt that his inspiration is Andreas Iniesta and he prefers a cappuccino over a latte.

One fan wanted to know which former Man United player does Fernandes wish he could have in the current team.

A club of the Red Devils’ statute has some real legends to choose from and the 26-year-old couldn’t choose just one.

He replied: “Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney or Cantona.”

Imagine having all three in the current United side with Fernandes providing the assists – title contenders for sure.

The Portugal international has been the Red Devils’ best player this season with 23 goals and 13 assists in all competitions.

He’s cut a frustrated figure at times when his teammates appear to not do the things that are up to his standard.

And former Premier League striker Dean Ashton has explained whythe Portugal playmaker has looked so frustrated.

He told talkSPORT last month: “I think his body language has been really interesting in the last month I feel like I’ve really noticed it.

“When there’s a pass he’s played isn’t controlled properly or a pass isn’t given to him in the right area. Or even a pass given to a teammate on an attack that’s not good enough, he turns away in disgust and throws his arms up in the air.

“He’s getting frustrated with the players around him. Personally, I think it’s because he’s on another level to the other players, maybe Rashford not included.

“I would say he’s at another level to players and they’re not there with him.

“If you’re a Chelsea, Liverpool or Man City then you target Fernandes. You make sure you cut off the channels to him, you get tight to him as you know if you get tight to him you pretty much nullify Manchester United.”
