Bruno Fernandes vowed to push for more trophies after lifting his first as Manchester United captain following victory in the FA Cup final.

Our captain led us out at Wembley for the second year running, in what was a repeat of the 2023 showpiece against Manchester City, setting up the decisive goal for Kobbie Mainoo and leaving everything on the pitch to see it through.

On social media a few hours after hoisting the historic trophy above his head, Bruno expressed his delight in being able to deliver silverware for our fans.

"What a team performance," he said. "This is what United is about and this is what we will continue to push for. This is for you Reds."

On Instagram, Alejandro Garnacho, who scored our first goal in the final, referenced his pledge to fans after last season's Wembley defeat. "[A] year ago I promised you to bring it home," he said.

"What a day, what a club!!!" was Raphael Varane's reaction after his final game in a United shirt - the perfect send-off.

Andre Onana, concluding his debut season at United with a trophy, thanked the fans inside Wembley for helping energise our players.

"This one is for you REDS. We felt your energy to take the FA Cup where it belongs."

Former United stopper Edwin van der Sar, also a mentor to Onana at Ajax, replied in the comments: "Congratulations, Andre".

Marcus Rashford posted on X alongside a picture of tears streaming down his face: "People want to know what Man Utd means to me!"

"We're Man United and we're never gonna stop," was the cry from Harry Maguire on Instagram.

Diogo Dalot posted: "Enjoy the day, Reds. You deserve a bit of joy! We’ll be back to suffer and win, TOGETHER."

Sofyan Amrabat, a colossus on the Wembley turf, was overjoyed.

"What a feeling to win the FA Cup with this great football club! No better feeling! Come on you reds!!" he posted.

You simply cannot watch this post-match celebration video without smiling...

"A boy with a dream," was the captioned that accompanied a picture of Rasmus Hojlund with the FA Cup.

In a separate post, our Danish striker also poked fun at a certain blue-leaning band.

"Since Manchester is red, this is the new wonderwall," he captioned another image as he stood with the trophy and Garnacho, Amad and Kobbie Mainoo.

Instantly iconic.
