Bruno Fernandes makes two worrying Man Utd admissions after Newport win



| Last Updated:


Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes has made several worrying admissions about the Red Devils’ season so far.

Speaking after United’s fourth-round FA Cup victory against Newport County, Fernandes admitted that the FA Cup is now United’s only chance at silverware this season.

Fernandes would also admit that victory in the FA Cup, will be key in recovering from just how poor United have been so far this season.

“We have to understand that the FA Cup is our chance to win a trophy,” stated Fernandes. “We have to give everything to get into the final step by step, game by game.

“But we know that to make the season look not as bad as it has been, we have to try to win this trophy because it is important for us.

“We have been in the final last year. Unfortunately, we did not get the trophy. We know how much the FA Cup means for our fans, our club, for the country.

“So we know how important it is [for the fans] and it’s important for us too. We want to get into the final and win.”

Fernandes’ admission that United’s season has been well below the expected standard of the club is a sentiment shared by Manchester United fans across the world.

Erik ten Hag’s side have been knocked out of both European football, and the Carabao Cup.

Meanwhile, in the Premier League United are languishing in eighth position, eleven points off fourth placed Aston Villa, and sixteen points off league leaders Liverpool.
