If you intend to join Premier League side Manchester United, the major criteria you have to meet is you must be ‘hungry for titles’. This is according to the new talisman of the club, Bruno Fernandes who said Manchester United has gotten a big team that can go all the way.
Bruno Fernandes is preaching what he has been practising since he joined the club in January this year. He has shown, in every touch of the ball, that he came to the Old Trafford for just one thing which is to win titles.
This hunger he brought to the team became the game-changer for the whole team. Manchester United that was struggling at the first half of the season, suddenly became a firebrand, going on an 11-game unbeaten streak before the coronavirus pandemic interrupted the season.
What a better way can one measure the impact Bruno Fernandes has had on Manchester United so far. The contribution of the 25-year-old Portuguese midfielder was so huge that he was voted the player of the month for February, less than two months after his arrival in the Premier League.
In just 9 appearances for Manchester United since January, Bruno Fernandes has scored 3 goals and has made 4 assists, which prove that he came to Manchester United with an unquenchable hunger.
“I want to win everything. I’m hungry to win everything. I came to Manchester to win, to win titles, league, Champions League, everything,” Fernandes said in a Q&A with supporters on United’s official website.
Bruno Fernandes wants people hungry for titles
That is the kind of hunger he wants footballers like Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane, Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho and RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano to have if their transfers to Manchester United finally scale through this summer.
“We know the potential Manchester have because we are a young team, young players, but we’ve got a lot of quality”, he said.
“It doesn’t matter if we’re young and the others have more experience than us because we have also experienced players who can help the youngest.
“The mix we have now and in the future, I don’t know what will happen in the next season, of course, Manchester is a big club and normally they buy someone because you are a big club and everyone wants to come here.
“We already have a big team, but whoever comes needs to come to win. Just to focus to win, I want people hungry for titles and everything. I feel this now in the group, everyone wants to win.”
