Bruno Fernandes doesn’t care about his critics

Bruno Fernandes has revealed he does not care about the ‘penalty merchant’ label after he scooped up the Premier League Player of the Month award for December 2020.

Since he joined Manchester United, Fernandes has picked up the award a record four times in a year. He also became the first player to win it back-to-back since Mo Salah in 2018.

Despite his contributions to the English club, he has come under criticism over the number of penalties he has scored.

Bruno Fernandes has converted from 15 penalties in 48 matches giving him the troll name ‘penalty merchant’. However, he has said that this does not bother him.

“I don’t hear them! I don’t care, honestly. You always see what people say but I really don’t care. I’m not focused on what they are saying,”  Fernandes told reporters.

He also mentioned that it is not new to face criticism. “I played in Portugal and when you play for Sporting, Benfica and Porto are always talking about that kind of stuff – sometimes to put pressure on the referee, sometimes just to make some noise in the press,” he said.

Additionally, he pointed out that scoring penalties are not easy. He even mentioned how Raheem Sterling had missed his last three penalties.

“It does not mean Raheem Sterling is not a good penalty taker because he missed three in a row. It can happen. It could maybe happen to me but the important thing is to score and not to listen to what people say because penalties are part of the game for everyone,” he added.

Since he made his Premier League debut for Manchester United, he has scored 19 goals and provided 14 assists in 31 appearances. Yet, despite his contributions, the Portuguese international says he still has more to give.

“You can be better every day. If not, I will not come to training every day. I will just come on Sunday and play the game. I come, I enjoy my time, I try to learn, I try to give my best in every training session to be better, to improve, and I will keep doing that.

“I will never stop improving until I stop my career because I think every day you can improve, every day you can do something new, and every day you can do something better,” Fernandes said.
