Bruno Fernandes has earned 3 important points for MU – a team rarely in impressive form in the match after the international break. But the strenuous performance against the last group like West Brom made coach Ole Solskjaer unhappy.
“This is not a step forward“, coach Ole Solskjaer breathed when MU beat the team under West Brom 1-0. The Norwegian strategist must have felt relieved when he watched his students struggle over their opponents in the match, but he admitted they were far below their best form. The only difference between the two teams is the Bruno Fernandes penalty in the second half to help MU win 3 points.
A 1-0 victory brought the Red Devils to 9th on the rankings, but coach Solskjaer was not really satisfied with the full 3 points they got at home. “We played really well against Everton, it was a match for which I was very pleased. Today’s performance was worse but we got our first home win. Sometimes three points are more important than the performance, ”shared Solskjaer.
“It’s important to win but we don’t have the composure and the quality to score another second goal, then things will be more comfortable. The first match after the international break was never easy, there wasn’t much time to prepare. We know we can do better than this, ”continues Ole.
Bruno Fernandes has scored his sixth Premier League goal this season. Up to now, he has participated directly in 9 of the 13 goals of MU in the Premier League. Solskjaer has given a lot of praise to his central midfielder, especially as the recipient of penalty kick responsibilities.
“It says everything. If you play for MU, you should never be afraid of penalty kicks. If the penalty kicker is shaken after a miss, I will be very disappointed. I know Bruno will want to continue in this role. “
