Bruno Fernandes opens up and sends direct message to Manchester United fans
Bruno Fernandes has admitted that he celebrates like the Manchester United fans are in the stadium.
Since his mega money move to Manchester just over 12 months ago, Fernandes has gone on to become an absolute superstar for the Red Devils and a realm source of goals for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
However, The Portuguese has been restricted to just four home matches with fans in attendance since his arrival at the start of last year, with the Covid-19 pandemic causing isses all around the world, something that Fernandes has missed.
He says that he attempts to honour every goal home and away as if Red Devils fans were lining the terraces rather than watching on their televisions, Speaking to the club’s website, Fernandes opened up on how he and his teammates attempt to generate their own morale boost in the absence of supporters, as well as the inspiration he draws when he encounters them away from matchdays.
“When you score you want to celebrate,” he stated. “Some players when they score they don’t have that feeling to celebrate.
“[That is] because there is nobody there and we have to make our own way to celebrate and make the atmosphere happy when we score as if the fans were there.
“One of the things the fans told me when we started to play behind closed doors is that when we score you need to celebrate like we are there with you.
“I’m trying to do that, sometimes it’s difficult because you are not in the mood and maybe you don’t feel it, but I’m trying to do it like they are there or if they are at home then they are feeling that I’m happy and I am with them.”
“[I’m] just a little bit disappointed because, as I’ve said before, coming to the Premier League and coming to play for Manchester United, the atmosphere of the game day, I’m not living that at all,” he added.
“I’m feeling the support of them [the fans] on social media and when we can see them sometimes if I go to the supermarket and they say some words because we can’t be closer than that.
“It’s really good when you have that support [but], of course, coming from the stands would be much better.”
