Manchester United

’s game against Liverpool is rearranged for Thursday, May 13, and therefore the Red Devils are going to play four games in a week. However, it seems

Bruno Fernandes

does not feel tired at all as he claimed that he will never be too tired to play every single minute of every game for his club.

He also sent a message to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he will always be ready for selection if he is not injured.

The Portugal international told

United's official website


“For me, the most important [thing] is playing. When the coach wants me, it's important to know I'm ready to play every game, every minute.

“I will never say I'm [too] tired to play because this is my dream. I will never be tired to play.

“When I was a kid, I played maybe seven or eight hours a day. So, to play 90 minutes every three days or two days is not enough for me.”

Fernandes’ scoring stats speak for themselves as he is just one goal behind

Erling Haaland

in the European scoring charts.

However, numbers are not the most important thing to him as when he was asked whether he is aiming to overtake Haaland, he replied:

“No. For me, helping Rashy (Rashford) to pass him is more important for me.

“I'm there to serve my strikers. It doesn't matter if I pass him or Rashy passes him. I will be happy anyway because I give many assists. If we both go ahead of him? That would be good and we draw at the end!”

The Red Devils are going to play against Roma in the second leg of their Europa League semi-final on Thursday night with a 6-2 advantage. However, given the Roma were leading at half-time in that match, Fernandes knows there can be no complacency in the Italian capital.

“I think we have to approach the game well,” he explained. “We know the qualities they have and what they caused us in the first half so we have to go there, not giving them any hope or chance to believe that they can change the result.

“I think we have great players but, anyway, it doesn't matter who plays. We have qualities and everyone can do something for the team, everyone can score, everyone, if they have a chance, can do really well. It doesn't matter who plays, everyone will be ready.”
