The Dutch manager praised Fernandes’ resilience and leadership qualities and also cited instances where the midfielder displayed unwavering commitment despite physical challenges.

“Taking responsibility is one of the biggest assets top footballers have nowadays to show and to deliver,” Ten Hag added.

“Bruno is a very good example for many other players. He is a real fighter. Last year when we played Brighton in the (FA Cup) semi-final, he played with an ankle that was so thick. It was unbelievable.
