- Bruno Fernandes has stated that he is yet to enjoy the thrills of the fans at Old Trafford
- The 26-year-old has played just four matches in front of supporters since joining Man United
- The Portuguese midfielder has scored three of his 30 goals with the Red Devils' fans present
Bruno Fernandes has revealed that he is yet to feel the atmosphere of fans at Old Trafford since joining Man United in January 2020, Mirror.
The Portugal international has only played four games in front of the Red Devils' faithful since making his £46.5million from Sporting Lisbon a year ago.
United supporters have only seen three out of 30 of his goals scored as fans have not been allowed to watch matches in the stadium due to the global pandemic.
Fernandes was asked if he missed scoring in front of passionate fans at the Theatre of Dream, he responded:
“No, just a little bit disappointed.
“As I’ve said before, coming to the Premier League and coming to play for Manchester United, the atmosphere of the game day, I’m not living that at all.
“I’m feeling the support of the fans on social media and when we can see them sometimes if I go to the supermarket and they say some words, because we can’t be closer than that.
“It’s really good when you have that support and, of course, coming from the stands would be much better. When you score you want to celebrate.
“Some players when they score they don’t have that feeling to celebrate, because there's nobody there and we have to make our own way to celebrate and make the atmosphere happy when we score as if the fans were there.
“One of the things the fans told me when we started to play behind closed doors is that when we score, you need to celebrate like we're there with you. I’m trying to do that.
“Sometimes it’s difficult, because you're not in the mood and maybe you don’t feel it, but I’m trying to do it like they're there or if they're at home then they're feeling that I’m happy and I'm with them.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Manchester United striker has been slapped with a two-match ban after delivering a dangerous tackle on Everton striker Richarlison during Uruguay's World Cup qualifier against Brazil, Mirror.
The incident occurred last November as Cavani stamped on Richarlison's ankle in the 71st minute in the defeat to the Samba Boys.
Cavani got a straight card red card after the incident and the 33-year-old will not be available for March's CONMEBOL's qualifier against Argentina and Bolivia.
