Bruno Fernandes Hilariously Jokes About Aaron Wan-Bissaka's Stunning Goal Against Newcastle
A shocked Bruno Fernandes hilariously claimed he didn't know Aaron Wan-Bissaka could shoot after the defender scored a stunning goal in Manchester United's victory over Newcastle United.
United picked up a much-needed win in the Premier League after thrashing Newcastle 4-1 on Saturday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side came from behind to secure three points on the road with Harry Maguire, Fernandes, Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford all getting on the scoresheet.
And speaking after the game, United's Portuguese star was left in disbelief after the full-back's superb strike in the 90th minute.
"[We were so happy] because we didn't know he can shoot!" He told MUTV.
"So it's difficult for us believing he can score because we never see him shooting.

"We were talking about it now in the dressing room and asking him because we all were thinking he wanted to cross and he makes a bad ball and scores."
Fernandes continued: "But I'm happy for him, he deserved the goal and we always ask this from him. Be more positive, be more in the box, try and improve because he has such good qualities.
"Everyone knows about him being a defensive player and everything but he needs to show that he's more than a defensive player and I think he has the qualities to show that."
Wan-Bissaka added: "After that, the confidence is there to push on more and eventually shoot next time because, as you can see, it went in and that's more to take on."
When asked about Fernandes poking fun at his goal being a cross-come-shot, he laughed and replied: "Nah, the others were!
"But I had to make sure this one was a shot."
