Bruno: We made things complicated
Fernandes says that United didn't start with enough intensity in Turkey, but that the Reds are still confident...
Bruno, it was obviously a tough night. What did you make of it? "Of course, today is a bad game. Everything goes wrong. We did everything wrong. The intensity was not good since the beginning of the game. They found a goal early and, after, the game was complicated for us. We tried until the end but the problem was [that] I think we came later into the game. I guess it was disappointing to concede the goals like that in the first half? "Of course, of course. I think we can do much better; everyone feels that. We know we can't concede goals like that, but now it's time to look [at] what we did wrong, to make it better in the next game." When Anthony scored just before half-time, did you think that could be the turning point of the game? "I think of course. You know when you score a goal and you go 2-1 before the ending of the first half, you go to the break a little more confident and I think we come out in the second half, we play, and we tried it, but we didn't create a lot of chances. We didn't shoot on goal. But we had the ball, we tried to play, we tried to create the spaces, but they defended well, they did a very good game. They sacrified - everyone sacrificed for the team. And so it was hard for us." Has confidence taken a little bit of a knock this week for the lads? "Of course, after a few defeats, it's hard to think or say something about this. But I think we need to look: one week ago, everyone was talking about we're going well, we're doing amazing games. We won against Newcastle, we won against Paris, we beat Leipzig. We draw against Chelsea in one game when we can win. But of course the points we have in the league is not the points we want. Today was important for us - winning the game to be comfortable in the table. Of course, making one or a few points again we [would have almost] passed the group. But now it's the same. We need to do the same: going for every game, trying to win, and it will not be different in the Champions League. We are in a good position. Of course in the league we are not in a good position - we all know that. We need to do much better, and we need to do something more than say 'do something in the next game' because it will be a difficult game for us. Our focus now needs to be already there."
