Key attacking star insists Europa League glory is not enough for Man United

Bruno Fernandes admits winning the Europa League will not be enough for Manchester United

Speaking to TalkSport (h/t The Daily Mail), Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has admitted that finishing second and winning the Europa League is not enough to classify the season as a success for the club.

The Red Devils are currently behind Manchester City in the Premier League table. With a 14 point deficit to overcome, it is fair to say that the title race is as good as over.

This means our best chance of silverware now lies in the Europa League. United take on Granana later tonight in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-finals.

“If we had won four trophies this season, we still have to improve. And if we just win the Europa League, we still have to improve.”

The Europa League represents our best chance at winning a trophy

With 23 goals and 14 assists this season, Fernandes has led United from the front this season. The Portuguese playmaker is an extremely competitive player who is not afraid to hide his emotions on the field.

Fernandes believes there is still much for the team to improve and that the ambition must always be high at a club such as United.

“No, it is never sufficient when you win just one trophy at this club.”

A club that is synonymous with winning trophies, the Red Devils have endured a four-year barren spell until now. Fernandes is keen to return the club to its glory days and is not satisfied with just winning one.

Not over until the fat lady sings

He is of the opinion that United must strive to win as many trophies as they can in a season and not keep improving. Given that he applies it to his own performances, he has every right to demand more from his teammates.

“The most important thing for us is understanding it doesn’t matter how many trophies we win, we still have to improve.”

Perhaps a reminder of his fighting spirit, Fernandes is refusing to admit defeat in the Premier League title race until it is mathematically impossible for us to usurp City.

We could do with more of this mentality from the players around him.

While we admit that winning as many trophies as we can should be the goal, United have shown progress in the league this season. Going on to win the Europa League would end the season on a high and provide a basis for us to build on.
