Bruno Fernandes opens up: “RESPECT”, a word that is often mentioned in the game of football has become a more integral part of this beautiful game than ever before in recent years. The heartwarming moments of the opposition players paying respect to each other and at times, to the opposition fans often surface on social media.
The established order of hatred in the name of rivalry is long gone in the majority parts of mainstream football. Various campaigns and taglines have certainly played a big role in ensuring this but more than anything, the social structure of modern society has contributed the most. Everything is out in the open these days, all thanks to social media and the internet. Nearly all the time we talk about the catastrophes these bring into the lives of sports personalities but rarely mention the benefits. The football players get to connect with the fans more because of this and this helps in the promotion of the player and the club he/she represents.
So, if the players have anything to ask or say to the fans, they can use social media to take their stand and voice their opinion. One such thing happened when recently Bruno Fernandes was asked a question, ‘toughest midfielder you’ve ever played against in the Premier League’ and he highlighted the name of the Belgian maestro Kevin de Bruyne to answer that.

Kevin de Bruyne – The Best In The League?
Kevin de Bruyne has been a standout midfielder in the league for the last four or five seasons and it’s no surprise that all the other midfielders in the league respect his game and are trying to catch up to him. Bruno has now openly admitted that he is also one of those.
In their recent meeting in the Manchester derby, KdB got one over the entire Manchester United team as Manchester City defeated them by four goals to one with the Belgian scoring a brace. In the last few years, ‘Bruno vs KdB’ has become a hot topic of discussion for everyone and the recent accomplishments have put KdB way ahead of not only Bruno but every midfielder in the league. Bruno does have a lot of catching up to do but his ability to recognise his limitations and constraints and simultaneously, pay respect to one of his local rivals just makes us remember the evergreen saying, “Class recognises class”
