Fernandes aims to end ‘tough’ season on a high with FA Cup

Bruno Fernandes hopes Manchester United can end a ‘tough season’ on a high with success in the FA Cup final.

Fernandes produced a man-of-the-match performance as Manchester United beat Newcastle 3-2 in their final home fixture of the Premier League campaign on Wednesday night.

The Portugal international created five chances and set up the home side’s third goal for Rasmus Hojlund, as the Red Devils kept alive their hopes of European qualification.


The win moved Manchester United level on points with seventh-placed Newcastle, though Erik ten Hag’s team trail the Magpies on goal difference heading into the final weekend.

Fernandes admitted it has been a tough season for his team but outlined his determination to reward the fans’ support with silverware, ahead of the FA Cup final against Manchester City on May 25.

“Obviously the job isn’t finished yet. We still have one game in the Premier League then the biggest game of the season, the FA Cup final,” Fernandes told Sky Sports.

“It has been a tough season. The table shows that and we are all aware of that. The fans have been amazing and behind us all season. We all appreciate what they have been doing for us.

“We want to do better and do differently and they [fans] deserve that.


“They have been amazing for us and we had to do something, we have been trying but results don’t show that. We have been working hard and everyone has been giving their best it is not enough and we have to do more.

“We still have two games to go and we have to finish in the best way.

“It doesn’t exist, a captain’s performance, it is a team performance.

“I am no different from anyone just because I have the armband. I always try my best and we always do the best we can for the club – nobody hides that we play for a big club and we have to lift our standards every game.”
