Bruno Fernandes makes ‘difficult’ Everton admission as Man United captain clarifies latest rumour



| Last Updated:


Bruno Fernandes has admitted that it will be ‘difficult’ for Manchester United to travel to play Everton following their 10-point deduction in the Premier League.

The Toffees were deducted the most points of any team in Premier League history for financial breaches and now sit joint-bottom alongside Burnley with four points.

Their next game comes against United at Goodison Park and there is expected to be a fierce atmosphere following the decision, which Everton are looking to challenge.

Erik ten Hag’s side have won four of their last five league fixtures but still lack confidence in their performances.

Captain Bruno Fernandes has addressed the upcoming clash and stated that the team need to be prepared for the game.

“We have to focus game by game, now we have an away game against Everton and it’s really difficult to play there,” Fernandes told FourFourTwo. “They just lost 10 points, so we know that they need points, they are going to fight for their points, so we just have to find the focus to go to Everton and win the game, because we know that in the Premier League, these kinds of games are always tough.”

Following on from the Everton clash comes an all-important Champions League clash in Turkey where a loss against Galatasaray would mean United’s exit from the competition.

“Obviously, [Galatasaray] after that is a massive game,” added Bruno. “We know the position we are in the Champions League, what we need to do. So, it’s good to focus on game by game, because we can’t think too much ahead.”

The Portuguese midfielder has enjoyed a successful international break with his country, who qualified for Euro 2024 with a flawless record in qualifiers.

Fernandes has been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia in recent weeks and the midfielder shut down those rumours whilst on international duty.

“I don’t look at transfer rumours and I don’t even pay attention to them,” he told reporters last week.

“Today it is very easy to spread rumours in the press. I prefer to focus on my goals. I’m happy where I am.

“In Manchester, the start of the season wasn’t the best, but I’m happy. I’m a person who thinks a lot in the short term, game after game, week after week.

“Thank God I have the opportunity to play every three days. So my attention can’t move away from the matches.”
