Fernandes issues Manchester United warning and announces club ‘are building someting special’
Bruno Fernandes believes Manchester United are “building something important” after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men joined Liverpool on 33 points at the top of the League.
United have been very inconsistent this season and there was a fear at one stage that they would even fail to get back inside those top four spots by the end of the season, but that is no longer the case.
The Red Devils joined the reigning champions on 33 points after 16 matches by securing a hard-fought 2-1 win from an entertaining New Year’s Day clash with high-flying Aston Villa, and Fernandes has now opened up and issued a warning to the rest of the Premier League.
“I think we are building something important,” Fernandes said on Sky Sports. “We know that. “The most important for us is building a team. Building a group of players who take care of each other.
“Everyone wants the three points, everyone wants that win and this is what it’s about. We have to build this more and more.”
United had 19 shots on an evening that Villa managed 15, with Fernandes’ penalty the difference after Douglas Luiz was adjudged to have brought down Paul Pogba.
“I think today Paul was top,” Fernandes said. “The first goal he makes a good skill, he comes off from a player so easily. But we all know the qualities he has. I think it is not in doubt.
“I hope people is not in doubt on the qualities of Paul because we know he can play, he can help us and he can play really well, and today he did it. He was (involved) in both goals.
“In the penalty you see one of the best he can do, cover the ball and going away from his player, and I think he will give more and more and more with the confidence coming game after game.”
