  • Bruno Fernandes willing to step aside from Man Utd penalty duty despite spot-kick success
    Bruno Fernandes has become Manchester United's go to penalty taker since joining the club from Sporting Lisbon back in January. Bruno Fernandes admits he is proud to be the new spot-kick king at Manchester United. But the Portuguese sensation insists he is willing to step aside and let someone else take penalties if they ask him to. Fernandes, who joined United from Sporting Lisbon in a £67.4m deal in January, has been a revelation at United with a string of blistering performances. The midfielder has a 100 percent record so far - but insists there is much more to his game than this and that taking penalties requires a lot of bottle. He said: "We can't talk a lot about penalties because everybody will say, 'Bruno only scores with penalties'. If the others score them, it's no problem! They just score a penalty, you know!' Penalties are part of the game, you know. You need to score. You have the chance, but you need to score. "I know everyone is talking about them like it's easy, but you can lose a final with a penalty. Manchester United won the Champions League in Moscow with penalties (in 2008). "For most people, it's easy when you're in front of the TV. It is easy, 'just look at the goalkeeper jump to his left so why don't you shoot to the right?' Yeah, I can shoot to the right but, in my mind, was the left and the goalkeeper saved it! It can happen! But the most important thing, for me, is to keep scoring." Fernandes has no intention of hogging the penalties just to boost his scoring tallies and make him look good. He added: "It doesn't matter if I take penalties.

We have a lot of qualities in the team, like I've said before. I already talked with some players. Rashy (Marcus Rashford) was the guy who took the penalties, so I tell him, 'when you feel confident, if you want to take the penalty, for me, it is not a problem.' I will not fight. "I feel confident with penalties and I want to take them but, if someone comes to me to ask to take a penalty, I will not fight every time, just to take a penalty. In that moment, I can be tired or not prepared to take a penalty and I can say easily, 'you take it.' "The most important thing is scoring for Manchester United. It doesn’t matter if it is Bruno or someone else."
