Bruno Fernandes believes it is time for the Manchester United fans to experience "some joy", and winning the Carabao Cup at Wembley is the perfect start.

“It’s always incredible to be a Red, it doesn’t matter if you win or not, it’s always incredible,” he told MUTV at full-time. 

“You see the support they [fans] give us in difficult moments, and now it’s time for them to have some joy also because they’ve been behind us through the worst and now they deserve this. 

“They deserve to be in this position with us.”

Praising our loyal fans for their unwavering support, Bruno spoke to MUTV following our Carabao Cup success...

It is the first piece of silverware under Erik ten Hag’s leadership, despite the Dutchman only joining the club in the summer. 

Our ‘Portuguese magnifico’ believes the boss has stirred up something special within this United team, saying: “Erik came with his demands, his passion, with the way he wants to play, and he brought something special to this team. 

“We just have to carry on and do our best because this club demands a lot and we demand a lot from ourselves too.” 
While the Reds intend to soak in this moment for today, the staff and the players are still well aware of a big Emirates FA Cup game against West Ham United coming up on Wednesday. 

With one competition checked off, Fernandes is determined to add more trophies to his United tally as we continue to compete in a further three competitions. 

“It’s been amazing [to win the Carabao Cup],” he told Sky Sports. 
“First trophy of the season, but we want more. We want more.

“This is not enough for this club, we want and we need more, because, for our standing, we need more.”

Fernandes added: “For me, it was about winning trophies. Finally we did it, but I want more. I want much more.”
