In case you haven’t already noticed, Bruno Fernandes can do no wrong. In a new video he makes the goalkeeper look silly in between the posts while he celebrates a range of successful free-kicks and penalties.
When the game resumes — potentially next month — Fernandes will be raising his hand to take most set-pieces at United. It will be interesting to see, with Paul Pogba back, because not too long ago the Frenchman was our penalty taker.
It’s good to have a number of the players in the team comfortable with taking penalties, who knows what route we will need to take to go all the way in this season’s Europa League since we’ve got one foot in the quarter-finals already.
Manchester United have released a provisional 29-man squad for the return of the Premier League, as per Manchester Evening News, and there were no surprise omissions. The players we’ve sent out on loan this season are expected to extend their spells wherever they are and finish the campaign in those countries.
We don’t know where the footage below was recorded but it’s a positive sight to see our players staying in shape and finding the back of the net during these difficult times.

It looks like Fernandes has teamed up with RH Elite Coaching, who have their branding all over the video, so our guess is the Portuguese Magnifico has kept fit by paying for routine sessions.
Of course, we could be wrong but I’ll follow that up and see if we can get an interview or comment from RH Elite Coaching.
United are not the best wben it comes to set pieces, so this is something Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be happy to see, as Fernandes hit the ground running when he joined the club in January.
None of the players at United broke lockdown rules, except for Marcos Rojo who is on loan in his native Argentina and probably unlikely to return.
