“I am not Happy at all” – Bruno Fernandes

Bruno Fernandes of Manchester United believes his team deserved a better result following their effort against Aston Villa. Last night, the Red Devils drew 2-2 with Villa Park in an intriguing Premier League match (15 January).

Fernandes scored twice in the second half to give his team a dominating two-goal advantage. The Villans’ comeback, though, was spearheaded by new acquisition Philippe Coutinho and teenager Jacob Ramsey. Coutinho assisted Ramsey in halving the deficit before capitalizing on the Englishman’s cross to score his side’s equalizer.

Fernandes bemoaned Manchester United’s failure to finish the game off with a third goal following the game. According to the Mirror, he stated:

“I believe we get the ideal outcome in order to put ourselves in a position to score even more goals. Score the third goal to end the game. However, we were unable to obtain the counterattack or final pass. They have the ability to score, which they did, and thus we draw. I am not aware of it, am not aware of it at all.”
Additionally, the Portuguese playmaker stated:

“We get our chances and still could score again. The shot was not good, the pass was not good. The run or whatever was not working. They started to get more passes between the line and out wide.”

Fernandes did have praise for his side’s performance and believes they were unlucky not to get a result.

“I think the performance was better than the result for sure. Probably more controlled. We controlled the game better than before. We deserve more. But, the game isn’t about deserving, it’s about points. Unlucky for us. Still a lot to improve on even if the performance was good. I’m not happy at all.”

“I prefer to win” – Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes not content with his brace vs Aston Villa
Fernandes was arguably Manchester United’s best player on the night and was a constant threat to Aston Villa. His first goal was fortuitous as Emiliano Martinez dropped a regulation save into his net but the second was well-taken from close range.

However, the 27-year-old wasn’t content with his brace, adding that he’d trade those goals for a Red Devils win. Fernandes said:

“Everyone is happy to score goals but I prefer to win. I prefer to take away my goals and we win. Today my two goals don’t mean anything, because we go one point and we wanted three.”
The result meant Manchester United remain seventh in the Premier League. They could’ve gone one place further with a win, but have only fallen further behind in the race for a top-four finish.

Manchester United are just one point ahead of Wolverhampton Wanderers in eighth and five points adrift of the final UEFA Champions League spot.
