Fernandes speaks out on "heavy lifting" of Man Utd after record breaking season

Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has discussed the way in which he "lifts" the club, describing it as a "heavy" job.

The 26-year-old has been a core part of the reason why the Red Devils finished second in the Premier League, and could end the season as Europa League champions.

Fernandes finished the season as the club's top goalscorer and assist-maker, with 28 and 18 respectively in all competitions, breaking Frank Lampard's record for goals from midfield for a Premier League club.

However, the Portugal international insists that he does not "lift" the club on his own, with his success coming from the hard work of his team-mates and the "trust" they have built.

"I think with this club, [the best thing] is every single player together, not me," Fernandes told BBC Sport. "This is such a big club.

"It is heavy to lift this club. This comes from the help of my team-mates, they make me better every day.

"Of course, in the assists I have they help me with the movement, they help me with the quality on the finishing they have.

"I know I've done really well, but I don't lift the club for [by] myself. I have the support and trust of my team-mates, and that's what helps me do better and better because if they trust me, I know I can help them."

Fernandes also explained why he thinks next season will be "much better", in a message to the club's fans, strongly hinting that United will be going for the top honours next term.

"We understand that together we can reach better things," he told BBC Sport.

"We have the chance this season to win a trophy, but second place is a huge improvement from last season.

"The most important thing for me about next season is being all together; club, players and fans pushing to the same side.

"If we all do that we could do many good things next season, which, I am pretty sure, will be much better than this one."
