Ruben Neves has told Manchester United they are getting a "great player" and will see exactly what Bruno Fernandes is capable of in the coming months.
Fernandes embraced Portugal team-mate Neves in the tunnel ahead of his first Old Trafford appearance before the pair were involved in a fascinating midfield duel in a 0-0 draw with Wolves.
Neves, previously linked with a move to the Red Devils, was named Man of the Match but neither side was able to find a goal despite Fernandes having several long range efforts.
Asked about his Portugal team-mate after the game, Neves told Sky Sports he is happy for Fernandes and expects him to "show everyone what he can do", adding United will see his is capable of a lot as he labelled him a "great player".
Neves said: "It's always good, playing against our team-mates from the international team.
"I know him very well, I'm really happy for him. He's in a great club in a fantastic league.
"He can now show everyone what he can do. There is a lot because he's a great player. I'm really happy for him."
Meanwhile, United legend Gary Neville gave a positive assessment of Fernandes' debut as he praised his adaption to a deeper role in the second half.
Neville told Sky Sports: "I thought he did OK. It's a difficult game for him.
"I thought actually he adapted quite well in the second half and showed a lot of discipline.
"We've heard a lot about his assists and his goals and how he can have an effect higher up the pitch.
"But when he was moved into a holding midfielder role in the second half alongside Fred, I actually thought he did quite well to show a lot of experience and discipline and not expose himself too much.
"In the first half in the number 10 role, he reminded me a bit of what Juan Sebastian Veron used to do when he first came to Manchester United.
"He sort of charged around everywhere and moved everywhere and was busy, and sort of was looking for spaces but didn't really play to a position.
"I actually liked him more in the second half when he played with a bit more control.
"I thought it was a decent debut for him. I think Fred has done a really well the last few weeks.
"You never know, those two in midfield could control games and there was some promise there. It's early days, but I liked what he did."
