Bruno Fernandes Weeps After UEL Final Defeat

Bruno Fernandes was left in tears after Manchester United’s shock Europa League defeat at the hand of Villarreal on Wednesday.

The Portuguese scored 5 and assisted 4 out of the nine games he had played in the Europa league this season, contributing to the team than any other player.

David de Gea missed a penalty, and Villarreal were crowned champions making Unia Emery the manager with most Europa league trophies.

United and Bruno Fernandes have never been in final since the two parties met.

Hence, it became their only chance of winning trophy this season.

Bruno Fernandes is United’s talisman this season.

He is the team goal scorer in the champions league, and took the team on his shoulder to the Europa league final.

Ole Solkjaer, united head coach said his team ‘didn’t turn up’ but hopes they’ll learn from the defeat.

As reported by DailyMail, Solkjaer insisted ‘We’ve got to, not savour this one, but taste this feeling and make sure we don’t get it again,’ he said.

‘It’s quiet [in the dressing room] of course. It’s a disappointed dressing room. That’s football for you. Sometimes it’s decided on one kick and that’s the difference between winning and losing. Got to learn from that one.

One of United’s legend Paul Scholes has criticised his side’s mentality after the game and asked if the defeat will make the players bothered.

It’s difficult to come out of that game and give them credit, they weren’t good tonight,’ Scholes told BT Sport.

‘A few players, it doesn’t hurt them. Bruno Fernandes, Edinson Cavani, they won’t like it.They look like they’re proper hurt, the others it can look acceptable, even from the manager. They’ve become a nice club.’ He added.

Since Ole Solkjaer was appointed as Manchester United’s manager and Fernandes was signed, this is their first final at the club.
