"We Need To Improve And Fight For Trophies" - Fernandes Expresses Frustration Over United's Semi-Final Heartbreak

Bruno Fernandes
Man Utd's attacking midfielder, Bruno Fernandes has taken to social media to express his dissatisfaction at Manchester United after losing their fourth semi-final in a row. 

The Red Devils lost again to Manchester City 2-0 at Old Trafford in a repeat of last season's Carabao Cup semi-final. 

United headed into the match in great form too having dropped only two points in their last 10 Premier League games. City in the other hand had a depleted team with first-team regulars, for example, Ederson, Kun Aguero and Kyle Walker were unavailable as they are of late tried positive for Covid.

United appeared to be in full control of the game at the early hours with Marcus Rashford having a goal ruled out for offside. But, Guardiola's side later developed into the game and looked the likelier of the two teams to break the deadlock heading into the subsequent half. 

The first goal of the game came when a free-kick found John Stones at the back post as the defender scored with the inside of his leg. 

The home team were pushing for an equalizer but Fernandes and the other attacking players battled to discover a route past City's unbending defence. 

The outcome was sealed 10 minutes from stoppage time when Fernandinho fired a volley from outside the box past David de Gea. 

It implies United have now lost their last four semi-finals with Fernandes playing in the past three. And the midfielder broke the silence of his frustration of not being able to play a final with United yet.

He tweeted thus;

"I’m very sad and disappointed to once again don’t reach a final. 

"We have a lot to fight yet but we have to learn and understand that we can’t make the same mistakes anymore. 

"We need to make an effort to further improve and be able to fight for trophies!"

United also came close to playing at the finals in both the FA Cup and Europa League last season before losing to Chelsea and Sevilla in the respective competition. 

They will be hosting Championship side, Watford, in this year's FA Cup on Saturday before getting back to Premier League activity on Tuesday against Burnley.
