Bruno: We tried everything to win
Bruno Fernandes gives his take on the team’s performance, after our defeat to Jurgen Klopp’s side…
“We play side to side, we tried to do what we trained at. When you go down, playing 45 minutes against a team like Liverpool, we tried to push a little bit more and create danger. We gave more space to them, and they took that space and we conceded another two goals. Everyone was disappointed in the dressing room because we made mistakes but we learn from that and we have to keep improving. We are not at our best yet. We made the perfect start. It must be frustrating for you? “We started well, we score, we created more chances after that. After we concede… We concede two goals from set-pieces and we know we have to work on that. We concede many goals this season from set-pieces. As I said, we are disappointed in the dressing room and we have to improve, we have to be better and we have to do it in the next game against Fulham to secure second place. When Marcus scored to make it 3-2, did you hope at that point that we could come back? “We score and we try to push a little more but that’s it, we gave more space and we concede the fourth goal, this time on the counter. That’s it, it’s frustrating because we know, we're trying to win the game but it was not enough.” How important is it in these final two games to win to get our confidence going into the final in a couple of weeks? “The confidence has to be high, we know what we have done earlier in the season. After a defeat, it hurts a lot. We have to understand, we have to learn from this and not be afraid in the next game to do something. We have to keep improving. We know we are not at our best yet. It’s time to improving, keep improving and now improving from the mistakes we made today in the next one. I know it was a disappointing night but was it a proud moment to captain Manchester United? “I think everyone knows it’s the biggest honour to have the armband in the game for the club. I’m another one. I am proud of that. As I said, like after Paris, it’s a dream come true.
