Bruno Fernandes admits Man Utd player’s attitude kept him out of matches

Bruno Fernandes has made an honest assessment of his Manchester United team-mate’s change in attitude.

The Red Devils defeated Real Sociedad in their last Europa League group stage match last night but did not do enough to secure their place as Group E winners as they should have won by a two-goal margin. . Consequently, United will be forced to participate in the round of 16, in which they will face a team that has been relegated from the Champions League.

The only goal of the game was scored by Alejandro Garnacho, a youth squad player who made his senior debut just a week before scoring his first goal. Garnacho was assisted by his “idol” Cristiano Ronaldo and ran off to mimic the Portugal captain’s latest celebration.

He became the Reds’ youngest non-English goalscorer in Europe, a record previously set by George Best.

Fernandes gives verdict on Garnacho’s performance

Fernandes, who has been sporting the captain’s armband for most of the season, gave an honest assessment of the teenager’s performance. He told BT Sport after the match: “He was good but he knows we expect a lot from him, obviously he’s still very young, he’s doing very well. At the beginning of the season, he wasn’t at his best.

“On the tour he didn’t have the best attitude that he should have and that’s why he didn’t have his chances until now.

“He’s getting his chances because he’s training well and he has a different attitude and he deserves his chances.”
