Bruno Fernandes on the referee's decision
Bruno Fernandes commented on the referee's decisions.
Many believe that the referee made a mistake considering that Fernandes' goal was allowed, even though Rashford was previously offside. “He doesn’t have any influence because there was nobody close to him,” he said.
“So he doesn’t make any influence on the team-mates to defend. The only one close was the one close to me, so it is what it is. It’s a goal”. The Portuguese does not want to be too optimistic and believes that they must continue at the same pace.
He is aware that new challenges await them and that the season is long. Manchester United has a chance for the title at the moment. An exciting race for the title awaits us until the very end. "That doesn’t matter for us,” he said.
“We have to look forward to the next game. If you don't keep winning they’ll go [City will go more points clear]. We’ll celebrate a big win but from tomorrow our focus has to be on the next game." Pep Guardiola's team now has 2 defeats in a row and it is obvious that they have to change things.
