Wednesday 26 August 2020 15:54

Manchester United's Fred, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford have been selected by UEFA in the 2019/20 Europa League Squad of the Season.

The Reds were included in the 23-man roster, which was announced on Wednesday by European football's governing body.

United played 12 games, in all, during this season’s Europa League and made it to the semi-final stage, where we narrowly eliminated by eventual champions Sevilla.
Fred featured in nine of those matches for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men and the highlight of his European campaign came in the 5-0 win over Club Brugge in the last-32 stage, when the Brazilian netted twice.

The midfielder also put in another superb showing away to LASK in the following round, when he provided two assists as United again won 5-0.

As for Bruno Fernandes, our no.18 joined United midway through the season and began his 2019/20 European adventures with Sporting Lisbon.
Bruno bagged five goals and three assists in five outings for Sporting and added another three strikes and one assist for United in the knock-out stages, meaning he was top scorer in this season’s tournament.

Our final representative in the squad, Rashford, carried his excellent domestic performances into our continental matches.
Just one moment of Bruno's brilliance in the Europa League.
The 22-year-old was superb in our group-stage victory over Partizan Belgrade and his trickery and speed earned the Reds a penalty in the semi-final, after he was fouled by Sevilla’s Diego Carlos in the area.

The United trio are joined in the squad by eight players from the Spanish outfit, as well as six from beaten finalists Internazionale. FC Copehagen, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Bayer Leverkusen, Shakhtar Donetsk and FC Basel also had representatives in the 23-man list.


Samir Handanovic (Inter), Bono (Sevilla), Karl-Johan Johnsson (Copenhagen).

Sergio Reguilon (Sevilla), Jesus Navas (Sevilla), Conor Coady (Wolves), Stefan de Vrij (Inter), Jules Kounde (Sevilla), Jonathan Tah (Leverkusen).
