Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes has hailed his winning mentality as the reason he performs very well.
The Portuguese has netted 28 times for United since his arrival from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020, with 18 assists in just 51 appearances.
His ever-improving performances have helped United to second place in the Premier League this season, as well as an appointment with West Ham in the Fifth round of the FA Cup.
While speaking at a recent interview, the 26 year old credits his constant need to win as the secret to his success.
He’s quoted by Goal as saying, “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 can help United back to the summit of the Premier League table again tonight, if he and his teammates inspire us to a win against Sheffield United.
