Man Utd midfielder Fernandes: I'll kick someone if I have to

Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes insists he has no problems getting down and dirty.

The Portuguese star is known to have tussles with opposing players, and he says he needs to play passionately to ‘feel alive’.

“It’s who I am,” he told The Athletic. “What you see on the pitch is the Bruno who is passionate for the game, who will not give anything away.

“I can even fight with somebody who is my friend away from the pitch.

“I play against Wolves and there are many Portuguese players (in the Molineux squad) but if I have to kick them, I will kick them. If I have to moan at them, I will.

“I need that. I played many games where I was quiet, and nobody said anything about that. But I did not feel myself. I need it to feel alive.”
