After Manchester United beat Everton 4-0 in the final pre-season friendly, Bruno Fernandes said: “I’m feeling ready honestly.
“It was a good break for me, I enjoyed it. I’ve come back and had two weeks of training and I’m feeling fresh and ready to start the season.
“Of course, we know now that that game [Leeds] is the one that counts for the league. Today was about doing the right things, taking some minutes in the legs, start doing the right things, and try to put in what we are training all week in Scotland.”
The former Sporting midfielder continued: “Now we have one more week to prepare for the game and we have to prepare well because it’s a different game, different intensity, different team, different way to play. We know what to expect and I hope we can have the same result [as vs Everton].”
Fernandes enjoyed his first proper break in five years as he was seen holidaying with his family after Euro 2020.
Upon his return to action, he scored a brilliant goal from a free-kick against the Toffees to set the tone for a thrilling 2021-22.
