Solskjaer explains Bruno Fernandes’ penalty technique against Copenhagen

Manchester United boss, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed Bruno Fernandes tried four different ways of taking penalties during training, ahead of tonight’s clash.

The Portugal international scored his 18th consecutive spotkick for both Sporting Lisbon and United, after converting in the 95th minute, to send his team through to the semi-finals.

In taking the penalty against FC Copenhagen, however, Fernandes didn’t follow his usual ‘jump’ routine, and when asked about it during his post-match interview, Solskjaer said, “He knows that keepers will wait for him to do the jump.

“He did it against Tottenham. He practises both of them and practises both sides, so he’s got that sorted, better than I was anyway.”

Fernandes’ goal was enough to secure United’s place in the semi-finals of the Europa League.
