‘The maddest thing is he hasn’t actually been there that long but what he’s brought in and the quality he has – of course on the pitch – but inside the dressing room as well. He’s a leader for us too.’ 

Asked about United’s good run of form, Shaw continued: ‘That’s why we were all disappointed to be fair, but obviously we had to stop. 

‘We were really confident, results were going our way, but the most important thing is people’s lives and people’s health but we understand the situation.’ 

Fernandes has been hailed as the purchase of the January window as his three goals and four assists in his opening nine games since signing from Sporting have inspired a strong run of form for the Red Devils.   

It is a dramatic turnaround in fortunes at Old Trafford as they struggled to keep in touch with the race for Champions League qualification but now find themselves just three points off fourth in the Premier League.
