Bruno Fernandes on what he will tell Manchester United teammates about Liverpool clash: “If I need to say anything it’s a problem”

Bruno Fernandes says he doesn’t need to talk to his Man United teammates about Liverpool game

In his interview with TNT Sports, as reported by BBC Sport, Bruno Fernandes was fairly honest in his assessment of Man United’s 4-3 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday.

United managed to come back into the game after going 2-0 down early in the first half only to lose the game on the back of two late injury-time goals.

The Portugal international admitted it wasn’t good enough.

“It’s frustrating. It’s difficult to take. We had good control in the last few minutes. But they got two chances and scored two goals.

“From the corner we have to be much quicker. We knew beforehand they take corners and throw-ins quickly.

“In the last games we’ve conceded too many shots. It’s about defending your box.

Fernandes speaking to TNT Sports after the game.

He also mentioned that he did not need to say a lot to his teammates ahead of the Liverpool game on Sunday.

“It’s a big game [on Sunday against Liverpool]. I don’t need to say anything [to his team-mates]. If I need to say anything it’s a problem because this is a massive club.”

Fernandes is absolutely right

Man United vs Liverpool is one of those archetypal rival encounters for which both sides raise their spirits and standards just for the bragging rights, regardless of where they might be in the league table.

Players in neither camp need to be reminded of what this game means both for the two fanbases and their own respective targets for the season. As Fernandes said, if a big speech is required, then we have a problem.

Fernandes’ attitude ahead of Thursday is admirable, though, in all honesty, one hopes the United players are reminded of what the game means before they step out on the Old Trafford pitch on Sunday.
