Bruno Fernandes admits he is worried that he might not be Ralf Rangnick's type of player.

The new Manchester United boss is expected to implement his renowned high-pressing playing style when he takes charge at Old Trafford.

This has raised concerns that the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and his compatriot Fernandes will not be suited to his way of playing football as United have been one of the worst pressing teams in the Premier League so far this season.

And Fernandes has admitted that he is slightly worried that he might not be a natural fit for Rangnick, but vows to do everything he can to become the "perfect player".

Will Bruno Fernandes have a place in Ralf Rangnick's side? Comment below

Asked if he is Rangnick's type of player, he said: "I hope so. Everyone wants to be the perfect player to the manager, you know?"

"From everything I've heard about him [Rangnick], he's a person everyone respects in the world of football. He's a really good manager. He's offensive, he likes to press high. He's intense. I like that, I'm an intense player."

Ronaldo is another player who isn't typically known for his pressing ability as his future under Rangnick has been put in doubt.

And Thierry Henry reckons they'll both need to meet each other in the middle somehow and put the club's best interests first.

He said on Amazon Prime TV: "We shouldn’t talk about the man, what he can achieve, what he can do, or what he did achieve and what he can still do."

"Now, it’s going to have to be a discussion between Rangnick and him because we all know that’s part of the game he lacks the most and that is part of the game Rangnick likes the most - pressing and counter-pressing.

"So, they need to have a discussion on who is going to give up a little bit on what they usually like to do and ego’s going to have to be put on the side at one point for the good of this club. It shouldn’t be a Ronaldo thing or a Rangnick thing, they need to find a way to pull this club forward."
