Bruno Fernandes is ecstatic to have been named Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year, and he now wants to help Manchester United win a team trophy.
After a successful first season, Fernandes has cemented his position as a key member of Man United’s squad in the second.
The 26-year-old midfielder has 18 Premier League goals and 17 assists this season, as well as nine goal contributions in eight Europa League games, five goal contributions in six Champions League games, and a goal and an assist in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup, respectively.
With the Europa League final fast approaching, the former Sporting star can end the season on a high by winning his first trophy at Old Trafford and helping the club win their first trophy in four years.
“It means a lot,” Fernandes told MUTV. Individual trophies, I’ve always believed, are extremely beneficial to players.
“It lifts you up, I would never say I don’t want individual trophies, but it’s not more important than a team trophy for me. But it’s always important.
“You’re doing something well, you’re doing something good, doing the right things means you can do a little bit more, improve a little bit more. But, at the same time it means that the people are liking you, like the way you play, the way you trying to help the team, the way you do things, so that’s very important for me.
“But more important than that is winning a trophy at the end of the season and this is what it’s about because football is a team sport and for me it’s about winning trophies.”
