Manchester United talisman Bruno Fernandes has claimed that he will never be too tired to play every single minute of every game for his club, insisting that “90 minutes every two days is not enough”.
With the Red Devils’ clash with Liverpool now rearranged for Thursday, May 13, United have four matches to play in the space of a week – a schedule that is sure to take its toll on any team without utilising squad players and rotating.
Fernandes, however, has no intention of asking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for a break, but instead sent a message to his boss that he will always be ready for selection if he is not injured.
The Portugal international told United’s official website:
“For me, the most important [thing] is playing. When the coach wants me, it’s important to know I’m ready to play every game, every minute.
“I will never say I’m [too] tired to play because this is my dream. I will never be tired to play.
“When I was a kid, I played maybe seven or eight hours a day. So, to play 90 minutes every three days or two days is not enough for me.”
