Fernandes praises Man Utd matchwinner Garnacho: We're happy for him

Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes was happy for matchwinner Alejandro Garnacho after victory at Fulham.

Garnacho exchanged passes with Christian Eriksen before beating Fulham goalkeeper Bernd Leno in injury time.

Fernandes said of Garnacho after the 2-1 win: “He has a lot of talent and his workrate together with the talent makes a big difference with us from the bench. It’s not the first time he makes a big impact for us. We are really happy for him and know he can give us goals, assists and prove the joy of football.

“I think everyone is seeing signs that [he can go all the way]. Not because of his goals and assists but the way he comes into the game. Nobody likes to be on the bench so the attitude he has when he comes off has been fantastic. He deserves the chances he’s been having and he’s got his rewards. That’s what football’s about.”

He added: “It’s three points anyway. It’s important for us because we lost the last game in the league so it’s important to get back on track. We did it, it was really hard. Fulham were amazing so it was tough to play against them but we are very happy about the three points.”
