Manchester United secured a victory over Manchester City on Sunday, later Bruno Fernandes responded to criticism of his form against the Premier League’s “top six.”
Fernandes maintained that “people will always complain about everything,” after scoring in Manchester United’s derby win over Premier League leaders Manchester City.
Fernandes scored in United’s 2-0 win over City on Sunday, converting a penalty after just 101 seconds at the Etihad Stadium to end City’s 21-match winning streak.
“Every penalty has the same pressure for me,” Fernandes, who has 16 goals and 10 assists through 28 games this Premier League season, told MUTV when asked if he felt the weight of expectation. “It’s always pressure to take a pen, doesn’t matter if it’s against City or another team. It’s always pressure to take pens.”
“I like that kind of pressure. It’s good pressure. I knew what I had to do. I did it in the right way with the right power and I’m happy to score, of course.”
“Honestly for us, it’s about winning. People will always complain about everything. Today it will still be Bruno never scores in big games.”
“They will put open play no goals, it was a penalty [and say] it doesn’t count! So for us, the most important thing is winning the game.”
“It doesn’t matter how you score, when the ball touches the net it’s a goal. I will be happy and it doesn’t matter if it’s me or another one scoring.”
