Bruno Fernandes reveals Man United post-match routine that is fuelling his success

Manchester United talisman Bruno Fernandes has revealed he watches his own performance back when he gets home after a game. The Portuguese international has had an excellent start to life at United, netting 18 goals and providing 13 assists in 33 appearances in all competitions so far.

Despite his impressive performances, Fernandes remains keen to improve and recently explained how he analyses his performances.

In an appearance on United’s official podcast, Fernandes admitted he struggles to sleep after games and tends to watch the match back when he arrives home. 

He said: “Normally when I finish a game, I come home and it’s difficult to sleep because of all the energy and also all the caffeine you take before the game to give you energy, all the Red Bulls you drink.

“So it’s difficult to calm down, so I come back home and start watching the game.

“Looking at the points I did well, looking at the points I did bad or I need to improve.

“I like to see the analysis and then I’ll see how many passes I missed, how many balls I recovered, how many long passes I made and how many were good and how many were wrong.

“I like to watch all those kind of details because I think details can make all the difference in football.”

Fernandes also claimed he wants to emulate United legend Paul Scholes, adding: “For me, maybe I’m closer to Paul Scholes.

“You know, Paul Scholes was a guy who likes to be in the box, who likes to give an assist, who likes to score a lot of goals.

“I remember when we were about to play Club Brugge last season and I was in the dining room with Fred.

“We had eaten, but we just stayed there to watch all of the goals of his. After watching that video of Paul Scholes, I knew he was a player who scored a lot of goals.

“I think Scholes was one of the best midfielders in the world.

“For England, a lot of people talk about Frank Lampard because he scored a lot of goals of course, one of the best in England too, you have Steven Gerrard too.

“But I think Scholes is the one who makes more difference than anyone else. And before everyone starts talking about this, I haven’t seen every midfielder in England, OK!

“But I think in the last generation, those three were the three best ones, and for me Scholes was best.”
