Bruno Fernandes Names The Four Manchester United Players Who Remain Behind For Extra Training
Bruno Fernandes has revealed that four of his Manchester United teammates would stay behind with him for extra training.
Fernandes has carried over his fine form in the current campaign as he has scored 16 times and registered 10 assists across 29 appearances in all competitions.
The Portuguese star has continued to work hard off the pitch in training and keep himself on the ball as United challenge for the Premier League title this season.
Following the 3-2 win at Old Trafford, the former Sporting CP midfielder opened up about practicing his free-kick technique and how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to "kick me out of the training to stop."
Fernandes added that Alex Telles, Marcus Rashford, Fred and Juan Mata are the four players who stay behind with him at training.
When asked if he practiced free-kicks, the Portugal international told MUTV: "I think almost every day.

"Sometimes he [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 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, Rashy, Fred also stays with us."
Fernandes insisted that he doesn't need to be United's No 1 free-kick taker as Solskjaer has plenty of choices at his disposal.
"I think normally a little bit more long distance is for Rashy," he added.
"I think he feels more comfortable [from there], for me it is the same, to go the [closer] distance. I think closer to the box is better for me, for the kind of shot I have.
"Of course, if Juan and Alex are on the pitch it's a chance for them, more on the right side. I think we have good free-kick specialists.
"I think we have some players who can take [good free-kicks]. It will depend on the moment. In that moment, I felt I was confident to take the free-kick. It was me and luckily it was a goal."
