Fernandes Wants Trophies In Addition To Manchester United Goals
Bruno Fernandes brought up a half-century of Manchester United goals against Brentford on Monday but the Portugal international wants trophies in addition to his impressive scoring record.
Manchester United defeated Brentford 3-0 in their final home game of the season, with Fernandes scoring the opening goal of the game while Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane added further gloss to the scoreline.
Fernandes' goal was his 50th for Manchester United since making his debut for the club in February 2020, 21 more than any other player in that time, with Marcus Rashford next in line with 29.
He has also been involved in 61 Premier League goals(36 goals, 25 assists) since his debut, with only Mohamed Salah(73) and Harry Kane(65) having more goal involvements in the competition in that time.
Despite Fernandes' brilliance, Manchester United are yet to win a trophy since he arrived and they look set to miss out on a top four spot this term.
The 27-year-old is pleased with his efforts in front of goal but admits they will count for nothing if Manchester United do not add trophies to the cabinet.
"I am obviously happy but those numbers don't count," Fernandes told Sky Sports when asked about reaching 50 goals. "I want to get numbers with trophies and not with goals."
"This was our last game of the season at home so we wanted to give a good result and good performance," Fernandes added.
"We know our standard has not been the same as we expect but last game of the season we finish well at home. Now we have more games to go so focus on those.
"We know that we always have to give something. The fans have been amazing supporting us.
"We know that our season has not been at the level it should be but there is nothing we can do now but finish in the best way possible, win games and after, think of next season."
