Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick and midfielder Bruno Fernandes both reacted to their convincing win over Brentford on Monday.
Man United secured a resounding 3-0 win over The Bees at Old Trafford but that didn’t make much of an impact in the Premier League table.
United remain in the 6th position despite their commanding victory but are more likely to cement their place in the Europa League next season.
Brentford put out an early press but Manchester United controlled it superbly and responded with a goal from Bruno Fernandes, with Anthony Elanga getting loads of plaudits for the assist. Watch here.
Cristiano Ronaldo thought he had scored the second goal on the stroke of half-time but his sublime finish was ruled out for an offside.
A few minutes after the second half, Ronaldo scored from the penalty spot to double Manchester United’s lead. Late in the game, Raphael Varane tripled things up at Old Trafford after he got on the end of Alex Telles’ corner-kick.
Bruno Fernandes was pleased to get on the score sheet after going a few matches without scoring or assisting.
“Last game of the season at home, we wanted to give a good result and good performance,” Fernandes told Sky Sports.
“We know our standard has not been the same as we expect but last game of the season we finish well at home. Now we have more games to go so focus on those.
“The fans have been amazing supporting us. We know that our season has not been at the level it should be but there is nothing we can do now but finish in the best way possible, win games and after think of the next season.”
Bruno Fernandes continued: “It is a long time since I scored! Obviously I am happy but those numbers don’t count for me. I want to get numbers with trophies and not with goals.”
