Bruno Fernandes played his third game for Manchester United this afternoon in our 3-0 win over Watford and was named Man of the Match again. He scored United’s first from the penalty spot and also picked up an assist.
Speaking to MUTV after the game, he talked about what it meant to him to get on the scoresheet for the club.
It feels so good. For me, it’s another dream come true. These last few weeks have been amazing for me and the team. We drew against Wolves, but, after that, we had good games, away against Chelsea and home against Watford today, but I’m really happy about the three points and we are up in the table. I feel happy. My family arrived on Friday, they arrived just in time to see me score.
Normally, I shoot in this way, but I also change sometimes. Today, I felt confident to shoot like this and the goal was good.
As soon as Fernandes was brought down and the penalty was awarded, the Stretford End started to chant his name, wanting to see him take the penalty. He also walked off the pitch to the fans doing the same, much to the happiness of our new signing.
I feel good about this. The fans are amazing and they give me more confidence to play and be happy when I play, but also part of this is from my team-mates. They help me a lot, they give me a lot of confidence, they trust in me and that is the most important for me.
