Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes said winning the Europa League would signal improvement at the Old Trafford side but success in Europe’s second-tier club competition should not be enough for his team.
United has all but booked its place in the final of the competition it last won in 2017, having thrashed AS Roma 6-2 in the first leg of its semifinal tie at Old Trafford.
Speaking ahead of the return fixture later on Thursday, Fernandes said the team must view the tournament as a launch pad for long-term success. “For us, it’s a signal of improvement if we win the Europa League, because last season we didn’t win anything. So, if we win a trophy this season it’s an improvement – but still not enough for us,” Fernandes told reporters.
