Manchester United’s FA Cup fourth-round match-winner Bruno Fernandes has dismissed the notion he needs a rest.
It is less than 12 months since Fernandes joined United from Sporting Lisbon and his £47m transfer has turned the side’s form on its head.
From being a team that was struggling just to qualify for the Champions League, United are now top of the Premier League.
“Tired? At 26 years of age, I can’t be tired,” said Fernandes.
“If I am tired now, when I get to 30 or 32, I won’t be able to play or I will play one game out of every five. No, I am not tired.”
United beat Liverpool in the FA Cup thanks to Fernandes’ late free-kick on Sunday.
Yet, after collecting four Premier League player of the month awards out of the seven he has been eligible for, Fernandes started on the bench against Liverpool.
