Bruno Fernandes has called on Manchester United to learn from their latest semi-final exit and says the side ‘can’t make the same mistakes anymore’.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side missed out on the chance of a final appearance after being beaten by Manchester City in the Carabao Cup in midweek, the fourth time the club have been beaten in the last four of a competition over the past year.
United also lost in the semi-finals of last season’s Europa League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup, with Fernandes admitting his disappointment at falling agonisingly short of a major final appearance once again.
The Portugal international has called on his side to learn from their mistakes and ‘fight’ to bring silverware to the club this season, with the Red Devils beginning their FA Cup campaign with a home clash against Championship promotion hopefuls Watford tomorrow evening.
I’m very sad and disappointed to once again don’t reach a final,” Fernandes posted on Instagram.
