Bruno Fernandes snaps back at Marcus Rashford question following Manchester United win



| Last Updated:


Bruno Fernandes has pointed out that the whole Manchester United squad had something to prove following their Premier League victory over Wolves.

Manchester United have escaped the Midlands with all three points after Kobbie Mainoo‘s stunning last-minute winner made sure to save Erik ten Hag‘s faltering back line.

Despite being both 2-0 and 3-1 up, The Reds collapsed under pressure from Wolves and allowed them to claw their way back to a 3-3 draw in the final moments before Mainoo stepped up to deliver the final blow against Gary O-Neil’s men.

It was a game where most of the talk had surrounded Marcus Rashford following his visit to a nightclub in Belfast – and many questioned the decision to start Rashford against Wolves, but the English winger delivered immediately, opening the scoring in the fifth minute.

Bruno Fernandes, club captain, was asked after the game if Rashford had a point to prove, to which he snapped back to say that it is not about Rashford, but that the whole team must prove themselves each time they play

“We all have a point to prove every time we come on the pitch,” he told TNT Sports after full-time.

“Not only on Marcus but everyone else. But obviously, the guys up front have to score. He is a special talent. He has been proving himself. We are not in the position we want to be, and we have to work hard to get where we want to be.”

Fernandes also admitted that the game was difficult: “It was a really difficult game. We knew Wolves were a difficult team. We gave them some chances, and we should have controlled the game. It was hard work and an amazing talent in the end of the game that made us win.”

The headlines will no doubt be about Mainoo and his brilliant finish, and Fernandes had nothing but praise to give for his now midfield partner.

“He is a big talent. I have seen him play for the under-18s, and I said a couple of years ago the name of Kobbie without knowing if he would come and play for the first team.”
