Bruno Fernandes has revealed the technique behind his free-kicks and revealed the player who he trains with for set-pieces in training.

Bruno Fernandes settled matters as his free-kick went on to be a crucial winner as United beat Liverpool 3-2 at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The Portuguese was not in the Red Devils’ starting line-up but still made his mark on the game.

With the game headed for a draw, Fernandes came from the bench to score a free-kick that gave his side the crucial victory.

Speaking after the game, the Portuguese reveals he practices free-kicks every day and also revealed he trains with teammate Juan Mata.

“I think almost every day,” Fernandes responded to MUTV’s Stewart Gardner when asked if he’d been practicing free-kicks.

“Sometimes he [Ole Gunnar Solskjaer] has to kick me out of the training to stop.”

“I’m always working on that kind of situation. I like to watch and learn from Juan [Mata] because I think he is a really good specialist. I think in training we stay there most of the time – me and Juan stay longer, but also Alex [Telles], Rashy [Marcus Rashford], Fred also stays with us.”

Bruno Fernandes also added that the match was a good game and both teams put out decent performances throughout 90 minutes.

“I think the first half was really good.”

“It was a really good game for both parts. I think [it was a] very good game to watch. Two teams trying to win, playing good football, good pressure from both sides, quality from both sides. I think for the ones that are watching at home, it was a good game.”
