Thankfully, United prevailed in the shootout, but Bruno Fernandes has admitted that even if United win the FA Cup, this season will still not be successful.

“We’ll never be successful if we win [only] the FA Cup,” he explained to ITV after the tie. He also said that he thinks United aren’t performing to their standards.

“The standard of this club is much higher than what we have been doing. We have to do better in the league, the League Cup and in Europe.”

Coventry scored a goal in extra time to win the game, but VAR ruled it out as offside. Fernandes explained that he feels United put themselves in their own difficult position.

“When they scored a goal [in extra time], we thought it might be offside; we couldn’t tell from the front.

“We put ourselves in a difficult position and should have killed it earlier, but we didn’t. We have to do so much better.”
