Manchester United finally secured a noteworthy win last night after a series of poor performances, as they clashed their horns against Carlo Ancellotti’s Everton away from home.
Three goals registered for the Red Devils came off Bruno Fernandes and their new forward Edinson Cavani. The former has received special attention for the two goals he scored way early in the game, as well as for his creativity in the end to serve his teammates.
As the game entered its final moments, 5 minutes into the stoppage time, the Red Devils went on a counter-attack, when the talented playmaker letting go of the chance to secure a hattrick and make a name for himself, to feed the ball to Cavani’s feet so that the new man could score his first goal for the club.
While that alone made the supporters go crazy enough to glorify the midfielder, then arrived the post-match interview where the Portuguese showed his true sportsman spirit and his conviction to serve the team.
Accordingly, the second goal which was registered against Bruno’s name potentially brushed Marcus Rashford’s head on its way to Everton’s far post when the 26-year-old crossed the ball into the net.
The United No.10’s thoughts on the incident have caught the supporters awestruck. While talking with BT Sport, the attacker proclaimed: “Marcus can take the second goal, not a problem for me.”
“Marcus can take the second goal, not a problem for me.”
“We know in the dressing room what we have to do.”
Man Utd’s match-winner Bruno Fernandes is happy to share the goals around and insists it’s all about the three points 💪

It is, of course, the sign of a true leader to realise that they’re not in fact responsible for the results, rather they’re responsible for the people who are responsible for the results. And the midfield maestro has convinced us of his true leadership, as he wishes to serve his teammates more than making a name for himself.
The club, and the supporters, thus share the joy of having such a distinctive individual in the squad, who can lead his teammates to victory with much celebration than a normal victory would.
