Bruno Fernandes is hoping to help Manchester United to Europa League glory this season – but reminded Leicester City and other clubs that will be playing Thursday nights next year that he is glad he will not be playing in the competition next season. The Red Devils will join Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea in Europe’s top club tournament next term, while Leicester has to settle for a Europa League spot after finishing fifth.
Bruno Fernandes said “We feel good, it’s what we wanted, We trained hard and we worked hard for this moment. We know the only thing we could achieve this season was getting into the Champions League, so we fought hard for that. Of course, playing the Champions League is always special and I hope it can be with the supporters, that will be more special. We deserve to be in the best games, in the best European competition. Nothing against the Europa League, but everyone knows the best competition is the Champions League. Now our focus is on the Europa League because this is a really good trophy and we want to win, I came to Manchester to win trophies. We need to play every game to win. If we go into the Europa League and win every game, we know we’ll win the trophy. But we are not happy enough because we know this club and these players, they can bring much more for the club. I think we have qualities enough to fight for some titles – more than one title. I think we need to win some trophies and then we’ll be really happy.”
