Match reaction – Bruno Fernandes looks back on Man Utd 6 Roma 2 | 29 April 2021

Our Portuguese magnifco opened the scoring with a sublime finish on nine minutes, before netting a second-half penalty and laying on two exquisite assists for Edinson Cavani and Paul Pogba.

Fernandes spoke to club media after our memorable victory and his interview is a must-read below…

Firstly Bruno, what a night for you and the team…
“The performance of the team was top. The result is really good for us, could be better if we don’t concede goals but, anyway, we did a great job in the second half. As the coach said at half-time, we have four halves to play – we played the first one and we lost, the second one we win and at half-time in both games [the tie] we are through, but we have two halves to play again and the mindset has to be to win that game again.”

What did Ole say at half-time?
“The manager and the players, we also talk, as we said about keeping calm and doing the right things, play easy football, quick football, one and two touches and keep the head fresh and calm. Don’t go mad, don’t try to win the game in the first five or 10 minutes of the second half because we know we had a long way to arrive at the final. Like I said, before at half-time we knew we had three halves to play so the second of the four halves we ended very well. And we have to do the same in the two halves we have left to play.”
