Fernandes believes Manchester United capable of ‘great things’ this season

Bruno Fernandes believes Manchester United are capable of ‘great things’ this season after the club’s comeback win against Nottingham Forest.

United came from two goals down to secure a 3-2 win at Old Trafford in an unconvincing performance, after Forest had raced into a shock two-goal lead inside the opening four minutes.


Christian Eriksen and Casemiro cancelled out Taiwo Awoniyi and Willy Boly goals for Forest, who were later reduced to 10 men when Joe Worrall was sent off, before Fernandes converted from the penalty spot to score a crucial winner.

The Manchester United captain praised the character of his side to turn the game around and believes the Red Devils are capable of ‘great things’ this season.

“We showed great character. We didn’t start the way we wanted but we came back,” Fernandes told BBC’s Match of the Day.

“Overall the performance was really good. We stayed patient, knew how to control the ball and that was important to get the three points.

“I know what this team is capable of. We know inside the dressing room that we’re capable of doing great things. We know we have to be more consistent.

“There’s always pressure to score a penalty. It’s about you doing the right thing. I studied these kind of situations a lot and I’m ready if I need to step up, but we have other players who can step up.

“It was important. It’s never easy to come from a game like we did against Tottenham. We had a pretty good game but we didn’t pick up any points. We created a lot of chances. It wasn’t a great performance, but today we showed the team we are and what we’re capable of doing.”
