Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes shows he ‘gets it’ with a message after the opening day win.
Erik ten Hag’s side did not produce a good performance against Wolves. Hopes of a rip-roaring four or five goal win, will wait for another day. 1-0 had to do.
It was about as unconvincing a 1-0 win as you could possibly get. Wolves had more chances and more Expected Goals than United, and should really have had a late penalty.
Captain Bruno Fernandes was under no illusions that Manchester United have lots of work to do.
Bruno Fernandes reaction

Fernandes role in United winner
Bruno Fernandes played a role in Manchester United’s winning goal, slipping in the pass for Aaron Wan-Bissaka to set up Raphael Varane’s header.
The assist and scorer came from unlikely sources, but it was no surprise Fernandes was involved. While a lot of what he tried did not come off against Wolves, Fernandes never stopped trying, and got there in the end.
Speaking to club media after the game, Fernandes said: “It’s the kind of movement we trained, we don’t train Rapha to be in the box, but he was there.
.“Azza [Aaron Wan-Bissaka] made a great movement, I had to find him in behind the defenders and he did a great cross to Rapha, and Rapha was there to put it in and I’m really happy for that.”
