Midfielder Bruno Fernandes aims to improve each season, like his fellow Portuguese man Cristiano Ronaldo.
“You have to improve and understand that you are not the worst, not the best at everything,” said Fernandes on the Man Utd website. “You can start it all the time. Becoming worst is impossible because you want to improve all the time and similarly, you can’t be the best without moving forward.”
Fernandes joined Man Utd in January 2020 and immediately became a mainstay at Old Trafford. The 26-year-old midfielder has scored 26 goals, assisting 17 times after 45 games of the “Red Devils” in 2020. The importance of Fernandes makes him compared to Ronaldo – a countryman who has stormed at Man Utd and won nine titles with the club.
“How do they do it? Everyone says they can’t be better, but they do it year by year. They have been competing for Fruit. Golden Ball for 11 years and that will never happen again in football history, because they are still improving. I am lucky to play against Ronaldo in the national team, “Fernandes said. He always wants to practice. When he fails, Ronaldo knows he has to be better. When he wins, he analyzes specifically what he has done and improves on them. “
After a struggling period at the beginning of the season, the Old Trafford team rose to second place in the Premier League, three points behind Liverpool, but less than a match. Fernandes expects mentally challenged teammates like Ronaldo to compete for titles.
“It is important that we understand it from the inside, know where we are, what we need to improve and what to do about it. For me, the most important thing is that you must not think you are inferior when you lose, “said Fernandes.I think that’s what life is like. You make mistakes throughout your life. So is football. If there is no mistake, then nothing. Of course, if someone takes the ball from 38 meters and scores in the second second then no one will be at fault, but maybe someone needs to accompany him and the coach might think the midfield or defender of he made a mistake with him “.
