Fernandes admits Wan-Bissaka left Man Utd dressing room astonished

Bruno Fernandes says Aaron Wan-Bissaka left his Manchester United team-mates in shock with his ability in front of goal.

The former Crystal Palace right-back is known for his defensive prowess; his ability to track back and make a tackle.

But against Newcastle on Saturday, Wan-Bissaka burst forward to smash home a goal in the 90th minute as the Red Devils ran out 4-1 winners.

Fernandes spoke to the press after the much-needed victory, and explained how the Red Devils dressing room was delighted for Wan-Bissaka.

He also admitted that the team was surprised, as no one knew the defender could stick the ball in the back of the net in quite the way he did.

"[We were so happy] because we didn't know he can shoot!" Fernandes 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.

"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."
