Manchester United have a four goal advantage to take to Roma after a staggering 6-2 win in the Europa League semi-final first leg.
It leaves the job almost done… but not quite. United are not taking anything for granted.
Bruno Fernandes summed up United’s mindset heading into the tie with a message sent on social media. He says the team are going to Italy to win.
Fernandes is determined
Fernandes inspired United’s semi-final win by scoring two goals and providing two assists.
This took his tally to 42 goal contributions for the season, a staggeringly high number.
Fernandes was invited to speak at United’s press conference, and said that he wants even more. He is always looking to improve, and wants team success.
He said: “In terms of numbers it was the best because of two goals and two assists for the first time. Of course, it was a good game. I think also individually I played really well. I want to improve – so maybe next time three assists and two goals.
“The most important thing for us is the way we win and we are closer to getting a trophy.”
There will be some who feel Fernandes should not play against Roma and should be rested, with a busy run of Premier League fixtures on the horizon.
But he is so important to United, with his mindset and personality as well as his quality on the pitch, that Solskjaer will probably start him once again.
