“I want to win” – Bruno Fernandes addresses chances of leaving Man United under INEOS



| Last Updated:



Bruno Fernandes has explained what he told INEOS about his chances of leaving Manchester United amid the change in ownership at Old Trafford.

Bruno Fernandes has been nothing short of a complete force since joining Manchester United. He is now the club captain after four seasons of leading the Red Devils under three managers.

Fernandes has played under Ole Gunnar Solskjær, Ralf Rangnick, and now Erik ten Hag, who made him captain of the club, where his leadership abilities have shone through this season.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS have recently taken sporting control of United following the British billionaire’s 27.7% acquisition of the club, which throws the futures of many players into doubt following an underwhelming campaign.

However, Fernandes has explained in a recent interview that he wanted INEOS to be realistic about their promises to players.

“I’ve always told the club that I don’t want to be promised that we’re going to be champions because whatever club I go to, I don’t expect to be promised something that they can’t fulfil from the start,” Fernandes told Abola.

What I’ve always asked for and what I want from the club is for us to be competitive. This year we haven’t been, and we don’t have to hide it. The season has been below our expectations, below my expectations, at least.

“And I think the club’s too, because they’re not used to being in these positions. I want to be competitive, I want to compete, I want to win.”

Speaking further, he confirmed that he has told Ratcliffe and his team that he wants to stay at Manchester United as long as they have a plan and project to compete with the best teams in the country.

“I’ve already had a meeting with the new owners. They want to meet with the players and have already done so individually, and that’s exactly the message I passed on. I want to stay here. I want to be part of a project that has feet, legs, torso and head, everything we need to be able to compete with Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool, who are the clubs that have been in the best shape.”
