Asked who would wear the captain's armband in the absence of Harry Maguire, who, in addition to going through a terrible time will miss the game against PSG due to injury, the Norwegian broke the news live: “The captain sits next to me, it will be Bruno who captains the team tomorrow. It has arrived and has already made a big impact, as the statistics and all the accolades it is receiving show. “

In fact, Solskjaer wanted to go further in his recognition of his player's work: “If the equipment has not changed by itself, it has been a spark that has awakened something, and that is why I also hope that we have been the trigger for something in his career. His arrival was a key point for us last season and hopefully that's just the beginning. “

Bruno, for his part, was astonished and surprised by the appointment of his coach, but at the same time grateful to him: “I honestly did not expect any of this … I found out at the same time as you! This is a tremendous honor and a great achievement for me., the captain is everything, and that means helping and leading along the way. I think I am playing well for the last few months, but I think I still need to improve and do better and I know I can do it. I know my numbers are good, but I'm sure I can still improve on them. “
