Bursaspor midfielder Samuel Holmen believes Fernandao’s strength sets him apart from other strikers in the league.
“Fernandão is one of the top strikers in the Turkish league because of his strength,” Holmén told the official UEFA website.
Fernandao is currently the leading goal scorer in the Süper Lig with 13 goals this season.
Trabzonspor striker Oscar Cardozo trails by just one goal and Burak Yılmaz, Gekas and Demba Ba all have 11 league goals.
Despite being the leading goal scorer, Ba actually has more goals in all competitions.
The Senegalese international has 20 goals in 27 appearances for Beşiktaş in all competitions this season.
Fernandao has a total of 14 goals and three assists in all competitions.
Bursaspor have however, scored the highest number of goals in the league with a grand total of 39.
The 27-year-old striker joined Bursaspor on loan from Atletico PR in the summer.
The Green Crocodiles are reported to have a €5 million buy-out clause however, both Galatasaray and Fenerbahçe are reported to be interested in the powerful striker.
