Why Ten Hag made me captain after removing Maguire – Bruno Fernandes

Manchester United’s new captain, Bruno Fernandes, has spoken of his pride at being given the armband.

Speaking after a 2-0 win over Arsenal in a pre-season friendly on Saturday, the Portugal midfielder said he expects the team to step up this season.

Fernandes opened the scoring at the MetLife in his first game since replacing Harry Maguire as United’s skipper.

Jadon Sancho added the second against the Gunners to wrap up an encouraging win.

When asked about the captaincy, Fernandes said of Erik ten Hag’s decision: “The manager chose me because of what I was doing last season and the way he worked with me.

“He liked the way I work, my discipline, everything I give, my passion, everything I give, so I don’t see why I should change.”
