Football fans on social media are singing the praises of Bruno Fernandes after the Portuguese was named the English Premier League (EPL's) Player of the Month for February.
Allnews reports that the former Sporting Lisbon skipper contributed a goal and two assists in his first full month since his £46.6m transfer in the last winter transfer window.
After winning the award, Fernandes told the Premier League's website: "Since I was a kid, it was a dream to play for Man United and to be there at Old Trafford is the biggest dream of my career.
"When you come to a new club you always want to score, and the first goal is special. It doesn't matter how the goal is scored, but important is the goal's worth.
"I'm happy with my start, but from now I need to give more to be better."
Fernandes beat fellow nominees Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Marcos Alonso, Matt Doherty and Nick Pope to the honour.
The 25-year-old will be hoping to take to the pitch again when European competitions resume, with UEFA officials, set to meet on Tuesday to discuss plans for the remainder of the 2019-20 campaign as the world grapple with the effects of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
