Bruno Fernandes says ‘losing not an option’ as he assesses Man Utd title hopes
Bruno Fernandes admits losing is not an option at Manchester United.
The Portuguese sensation joined United to win trophies and cannot contemplate not being able to land silverware with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men.
United are riding high at the top of the Premier League and full of confidence after dumping Liverpool out of the FA Cup fourth round following a thrilling 3-2 win at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Fernandes, who scored the winning goal with a stunning free kick, believes he is a born winner who is destined to help lead United back to the top of English football.
He said: "I came to the club because I knew it is one that wants to win everything – and my mentality and my way to be in my life and football is about winning.
"So you have to be confident. You have to trust your team-mates, you have to trust yourself, and you have to believe.
"And I will believe until it's not possible anymore, you know? Like when I see someone get the trophy before me then I will (have) lost my belief.
"I always was like this. I don't like to lose, so I think maybe the mentality is more like I don't like to lose. For me, losing is not normal so my mentality comes from that.
"Whatever it is, when I was playing with my friends, my brother, with my neighbours, I never wanted to lose. I want to win every time, this mentality will be with me for the rest of my life."
Fernandes, who has been a revelation since joining United from Sporting Lisbon in a £67m deal 12 months ago, started the win over Jurgen Klopp's men from the bench amid fears he is growing tired.
But the midfield superstar has rubbished claims he is running out of steam and insists he will never be tired.
He added: "Tired? I'm 26-years-old so I can't be tired. If I'm tired now, when I arrive at 30, 32, I will not play. I will play one game in five so, no, I'm not tired.
"Of course the coach knows what is better for the team and he choose to play with Donny (Van de Beek) to give some freshness to the team.
"I think it's fair enough because Donny is training really well, he's been important for us and will be more and more important in the future."
