Bruno Fernandes hails Manchester United character after 4-2 win over Blades

Bruno Fernandes was the star on the night as Manchester United won 4-2 against Sheffield United.

The Portugal international, who was made club captain at the start of the season, stresses that United showed character in their victory over relegation-threatened Sheffield United on Wednesday night.

Yet again United made it hard for themselves, having to equalise twice before taking control of the game and going on to win 4-2.

Speaking to BBC Sport after the match, Fernandes admitted he wasn’t pleased about going behind against the Blades.

“We talk about clean sheets all the time and we want to keep them,” Fernandes said, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.

“Credit to Sheffield United. At the end we came back.

“We put ourselves in a position where it’s tough to win games. But also it shows a bit of character. We also need to be aware that if we control the game like we did in the first half, we have to score our chances.

“We’re scoring lots of goals. It’s just about that compactness we need to have as a team. I’m really happy to score, but I want to win games more than score goals.
