The Red Devils player wishes to win this year’s title with his club following their long wait.
international andManchester United
believes his team can win the Premier League with the help of their strong mentality. Since joining the Red Devils coming fromSporting CP
the player had a huge impact on their performance.
“For me, it doesn't matter about the other teams," Fernandes told UTD Podcast. "People may say they're better than us, they have a better first XI than us, guys who come from the bench are better.”
"People can say what they think, I don't care. For a club like United, it's a long time since we won the Premier League. It's too long, I think.”
"So you have to have in your mind - all the players, all the staff - we're here to win. And I think we have that mentality.
"I came to Manchester to win trophies. You're playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world. This club has made history in the past, an amazing history."
The Portuguese player who is known for his passing skills hopes that someday he’ll be as good as his coach Michael Carrick.
“I was watching in training and Carrick was playing – maybe there was one player less, and some of the players in the last first XI are in recovery – and I was watching Carrick, and he didn’t miss a pass,” said Fernandes.
“He’s a player who has that quality of passes and also when we need to do some finishing or passing exercises, he’s always there helping us with the balls. I’m learning a lot from him and he’s one of the people I like to listen to, because he was a big player, he won a lot of trophies for the club and for me you have to learn from these players.”
